Dr. Bonyfide – A Timberdoodle Product Review

I am so honored to once again be a 2017 Official Reviewer and Blogger for Timberdoodle! Timberdoodle is one of my favorite resources for “crazy smart” homeschool supplies and curriculum.   We were recently asked to review the Dr. Bonyfide Presents Bones book series.  We have been a long time fan of the Dr. Bonyfide books. They are so entertaining while at the same time wonderfully educational (like most Timberdoodle products are). These books are full of kid friendly rhymes, games and puzzles all while learning about the bones of the body.  Timberdoodle has included one book in each of their curriculum kits from third grade to sixth grade.  This is a GREAT age range for these books, but you can use all four books at any level.  Even the grown ups in our house enjoy them! 
 These books are excellent quality with thick pages and have fun and silly illustrations.  There are Latin word roots, pronunciation guides, wise quotes, clever animations, puzzles, games, cartoon stories, and wonderful ways to teach your kids how to stay healthy, fit and active and make healthy life choices.
Boo has discovered her absolute passion in learning all things dance (except tap – but we won’t discuss tap….ahem).   This summer her dance studio has been teaching an anatomy class that has lined up perfectly with us reviewing these books!   I continue to see God’s hand in our homeschooling journey and I am always fascinated when things like that happen.   She has been spending time with a replica skeleton at the studio and learning songs about the bones and muscles in the body. These books just continue the fun at home!  Of course we have to re-create the pictures we see in the books.

 As always, Bentley the world’s cutest dog has to give his opinion on Timberdoodle products.  He gives the books two paws up! 

 Boo is rarely right side up.

 The books even come with some 3D glasses for viewing games and puzzles in 3D – another fun bonus!

I love that these books can fit right into our classical education teaching style as well as Charlotte Mason methods that we use for learning.
These books have won tons of awards including Nautilus Book Awards, Parent’s Choice Award, Academics Choice Awards, National Parent’s Products Awards and more!  We love Dr. Bonyfide books!

I’m giving away the book pictured below to one lucky blog reader – the Dr. Bonyfide Bones of the Rib Cage and Spine – book 3.  All you need to do is leave a comment below – let me know who you are, your email address so I can reach you and what age or ages your kids are – you don’t have to be a homeschooler!!   I will choose one lucky winner and will ship it to you free!

    Oh my goodness these look amazing! One of my girls is a gymnast and another one is studying Latin this year. We are all studying Anatomy. These look like they would be an awesome addition.

  2. Love the pictures! And I love how well they fit in with Boo's dance class. AND I love how Bentley-the-world's-cutest-dog always participates in your reviews. Great fun!

  3. I was wanting to know more about this series. Thanks for the great review!

    I've got two students left in my homeschool. My 12 year old will be in Challenge A with Classical Conversations this year, and she will be learning all about the body for science. My almost ten year old will also be learning about the body in her Foundations class. So these books would go along with both of their studies this year. Thanks for pointing them out!
