We love Dr. Bonyfide. This will be the third book my daughter will tackle after working her way through 2 books last year. My daughter asked for the next book in the series after finishing book 1 after only a few months into our previous school year. We love this book series for a number of reasons. The activity pages are short and easy to understand as well as engaging, my daughter never spent more then 10-15 minutes a day. The engaging aspect of the 3D glasses made it fun for my daughter to share and teach her siblings what she had learned. The philosophy that one should know their own body at least as well as they know their computer phone or other device the like to engage in is a core practice that we can get behind. This series uses repetition with presenting the same information in a large variety of activities. There were very few activities my daughter did not prefer, but they were repeated so infrequently that we would just skip the pages we knew would be too much of a struggle, mainly word searches that personally I think are mostly a waist of space unless used for subjects such as spelling. I do wish there was a final test for the books so that we could easily test the knowledge, my daughter enjoys seeing her accomplishments in this was, so we went ahead and made our own tests. We will easily tackle the last 2 books in this 4 part series this next school year paving a mice foundation to move onto other body systems.
We have added the Dr. Bonyfied to our science round-up and I feel like the kids learned quite a bit. We just read a few pages each day and we were finished in no time!
We use this a few times a week in addition to the science curriculum. My son loves the pictures and interactive component of the book. In fact, I would find him looking at parts of his body (mainly feet and arms) after learning about it after studying his book.
We have the previous two books in this series as well as the next one for an older sibling. My son loved learning about bones while reading and completing the activities within this book. He is looking forward to the next in the series!
We have used the first two books in this series and loved it. These books are such a fun way to learn the bones. Even my 5 year old sits with us while we read it. They have been able to remember most of the bones with this series.
