About the creators
Dr. Bonyfide Presents Bones of the Hand, Arm, and Shoulder was developed by a team of educators, health professionals, artists, and parents. Our goal with this book is to bridge the gap between simplistic introductions to the body and dry textbooks to provide kids a complete and long-lasting knowledge of how their bodies work, and that is what we call Self Literacy.
Know Yourself, a Public Benefit Company, won the Nautilus Silver Award in the Children’s Illustrated Non-Fiction category for their first book, Dr. Bonyfide Presents: Bones of the Hand, Arm and Shoulder.

Nancy Howes founded Know Yourself in 2014. What started as a personal art project — inspired by her two inquisitive daughters — has transformed into a full-blown mission to teach children about their bodies and help them master their own well-being. Some folks will want to know that before founding Know Yourself, Nancy spent 25 years in the tech industry and that she holds a BFA in Metal Arts with High Distinction from the California College of the Arts (CCA) and a Masters in Education from Cambridge College in Cambridge, MA. What she wants you to know, however, is that she continues to be encouraged, challenged, and inspired by the creative force that is Know Yourself and is excited to come into work every single day.
