We love this time of year because every year around this time Slim Goodbody stops in the DFW area on his Bodyology tour around the country as he talks to children about how their bodies work and how to take care of them. To find out more about Slim and see some of the free educational resources, please visit his website.
Nicholas was excited to see Slim again. I believe this is his third year to go to the show. Rachel has been before but she was just a baby at the time and slept in her infant carrier for most of it. I was excited to be able to finally take her along to see Slim too.
The original Slim Goodbody has been performing for children in his special body suit for 30 years, he is no longer doing the shows himself. Although we miss the "real" Slim, the show was all the same Bodyology show and the new guy did a pretty good job...but I don't think anyone could do it as well as the original Slim.
We learned about the circulatory system, nervous system, respiratory system, muscles, bones, nutrition, etc. There is lots of fun videos and slides on the screen, songs and dance, and even lots of audience participtation. It's really a great way to teach kids about their bodies while having fun doing it.
Thanks, Slim! We look forward to seeing you again next year!
