Meet My Neighbor, the Dentist

by Marc Crabtree
 

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Tiffany Erickson
Using bright, clear photographs and simple text, this book will help anxious readers overcome their fears of the dentist. The first pages show the dentist at home with his family, including two young children; these will hopefully remind readers that dentists are regular people, too. Next, the action moves to the dental office, where the dentist cleans a patient's teeth and fills a cavity. The dental assistant is also shown sterilizing equipment for their next use, reminding the children that everything is safely handled. The patient is shown scheduling a future appointment, which will help children understand that visiting the dentist is more than just a one-time event. A picture glossary will help the youngest readers understand the text and encourage them to look for those words and pictures within the book. The concept is simple and direct, and readers will relate easily to the activities. This is a useful book for most libraries and even most dental offices. Reviewer: Tiffany Erickson
