A BOLTON primary school teacher has released the first book in a brand-new series designed to creatively educate youngsters about the human body.

Harry Heart is the first in a series of books called Organ-ised, written by Bolton School teacher Hannah Berry, from Lostock.

The book recently released, by publishers Austin Macauley, was devised by Hannah as a way of educating children in a more accessible way.

She said: “I had wanted to created the books for a while as I have worked with children and wanted to create something where they could learn and have fun at the same time.

“I really wanted to create something so that children can learn about the human body with rhymes and with a bit of humour.”

Future instalments of the series are in the works and feature alliterative titles of other body organs.

They include Bob Brain, Larry Lungs, Sid Stomach, Patsy Pancreas, Lucy Liver, Izzie and Iggy Intestine, Keith and Kenny Kidney and Suzie Skin.

The educational rhyming books are aimed primarily at helping children “with their understanding of the 10 main organs of the human body and how each specific organ functions” according to Austin Macauley, while providing the information in an “engaging and stimulating way”.

Hannah added: “It was a bit of a challenge finding perfect rhymes and writing the books at times but mostly it was okay.

“I’ve taught a lot of children in schools over the last few years and I know how important it is that they are interested by what they are learning.”

The book has already received praise from parents posting reviews on various sites.

One reviewer said: “My little boys really enjoyed this book. They are really looking forward to the next books in the series.”

Another said that she had bought the books for her grandchildren - “but learned a lot of facts herself.”

The first book is available to buy now in most book stores or direct from the publisher at austinmacauley.com.
