From Appointments, Bibs, and Cavities through X-rays and how to combat icky Yellow film on teeth, this book takes kids on a reassuring tour of a trip to the dentist's office. Bright, friendly collage artwork pairs with informative facts on equipment and procedures. This new edition includes an addendum with activities, frequently asked questions, and suggestions for parents and teachers on how to maximize the book's usefulness.
About the Author
From helping them learn to draw, know their colors, and how and why to floss, Harriet Ziefert has been writing books that entertain and inform kids from infancy onward. She is also the founder and publisher of Blue Apple Books. The author lives in South Orange, NJ.
"A visit to the dentist has never been so painless. Ziefert describes the experience in an interesting and comprehensive alphabetical format. Pleasing collages combined with colorful illustrations and diagrams provide a realistic picture of what goes on in a dental office. School nurses and dental hygienists would be able to teach a unit on dental health using the book, and it would be a worthwhile purchase for dental offices serving young children. A must purchase for libraries."
