WHY KNOW YOURSELF?

Know Yourself provides a complimentary curriculum for students ages 8 and up.

Our books provide an introduction to the human body, from the 206 to the integumentary (hair, nails, skin) system and everything in between!

How It All Began!

Imagine: You are in the kitchen and your 4 year old runs in yelling “Mom! Mom!” You look down and say “What is it?” They put your hand on their sternum and become still. After a second they whisper with delight “Can you feel it?”

Immediately you realize your little genius has discovered their heart beating.

This is exactly what happened to educator and artist Nancy Howes and her inventor and engineer husband Tim Howes, inspiring them to create the learning series that is now known as Know Yourself, PBC.

In the process of designing these books, our 3rd grader, and little women of color, challenged us around representation and character roles. In turn, we reflected this in our curriculum, making a socially responsive curriculum and embedding this into our core values as a company.

We worked with community members, teachers, and educators and created characters to reflect the communities that surrounded us.
