School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2-Straightforward explanations for newly independent readers. The books provide helpful information and reassurance about common health concerns. The large, colorful cartoon illustrations are active and depict children of various ethnicities and both genders. The first book addresses the purpose of dental visits, what to expect, the dental exam and tooth cleaning, and cavities. The second title covers the causes and effects of allergies and treatments and reassures youngsters that they don't have to be left out of school activities. Sidebars in each book ask questions about children's personal experiences and thoughts, which can be used as discussion starters. Each title ends with an extensive note to parents, with practical advice for lessening anxiety about going to the dentist and helping children cope with allergies. Solid additions for most collections.-Lynda Ritterman, formerly at Atco Elementary School, NJ (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
