Children's LiteratureYoung children are often asked what they would like to be when they grow up. To open the range of possibilities, many books are now available to introduce occupations that maybe new to children. This book is one in a series of six that serve this purpose. Readers are given a brief overview of a dental visit through photographs and text. The tools used by the dentist are both shown and explained to alleviate fears that might arise. Even simple details that could cause stress are included, such as the dentist's use of a very bright light to see into the mouth. Healthy habits of visiting the dentist twice per year and brushing carefully each day are introduced. The text is very simple and straightforward, suitable for preschool and primary grade students. The accompanying photographs are reassuring as they feature happy children and adults. A glossary, index, and list of additional resources are included at the end of the book. While books about occupations are not new, this one fills a gap in that it is appropriate for the youngest students. Part of the "People in My Community" series. 2002, Weekly Reader Early Learning Library, Ages 3 to 8.
