Hi! I’m Dr. Betty Choi.

I help kids and families connect and learn through great books and fun activities.

I have extensive experience creating interactive health education resources for learners of all ages. Human Body Learning Lab, my anatomy book for kids, won the prestigious AAAS/SB&F Prize for Excellence in Science Books in 2024.

I am also known for my bilingual parenting website, Chalk Academy. Chalk Academy was inspired by my struggles and success with re-learning my heritage language with my children.
