From the Author
Thank you for your interest! I have several goals with this book. First, breakdown healthcare information so that the youngest of readers can learn from a book alongside their care giver. Second, create an easy to read book for children to help progress their phonemic awareness, hence the rhyming format. Third, show children that books can be fun to read while also teaching. Fourth, you are never too young to learn. I have written a non-rhyming version of this book as well. However, since this book is intended for emerging readers, I chose to bring phonemic awareness to the book.
