Keeping our teeth clean and healthy is so important! During the month of February, be sure to spend some extra time with those chompers because it is National Children's Dental Health Month. Be sure to brush, floss, and see your dentist regularly!
Dentist's Office takes emergent readers on a trip to the dentist while providing them with a supportive first nonfiction reading experience. Carefully crafted text uses high-frequency words, repetitive sentence patterns, and strong visual references to support emergent readers, making sure they aren't facing too many challenges at once. Dentist's Office includes Tools for Teachers and Caregivers and a Let's Review! question and image, as well as introductory nonfiction features such as labels, a table of contents, words to know, and an index.
