Product Description

Dr. Bonyfide Presents: Bones of the Hand, Arm, and Shoulder is a great way for kids to learn science and anatomy.  Pinky, a smart girl from Oakland, and Dr. Bonyfide, the skeleton professor, present the 64 bones of the upper extremities in a fun way. Our characters use crosswords, mnemonics, x-ray images, illustrations and other graphic learning tools to help kids internalize anatomy concepts. On completion, kids will be able to pronounce, write, and locate their bones from their clavicles to their phalanges. In the journey they will learn some Greek and Latin as they explore the etymology of bone names.

Designed for young readers, this colorful workbook makes learning the names and functions of the bones easy. It is presented by Dr. Bonyfide, a skeleton professor, and his friend Pinky Le Darpals. They take readers on a whimsical, step-by-step journey through the bones of the hand, arm, and shoulder. 

Besides helping kids learning vocabulary and anatomy processes, this book helps kids gain essential knowledge of their bodies, with the ultimate goal to inspire self-confidence from the inside out.

This book is the first of a series of four books that explore the bones of the human body.

Our Founder


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.

The launch of our company and this exciting adventure series is the next big step in the Self Literacy movement that’s changing the way children learn about their bodies at an early age,”— Nancy Howes, founder and CEO of Know Yourself.
