Hygiene...You Stink! -3rd grade reading level (according to author)
Hygiene... You Stink! (Building Relationships) - Julia Cook,Anita Du Falla

Hygiene..You Stink!, written by Julia Cook, is a book about a fork named Jean. Jean goes through many trials and decides that since she is a stainless steel fork that she does not have to "take a bath", or "brush her teeth", among other basic hygiene needs. She is eventually told how important it is to take care of herself and how taking a bath and brushing your teeth can help you do that. This is a great book to help incorporate health into your reading curriculum. This would be a great lesson that you can do as a shared group reading and writing lesson. You can introduce the topic of hygiene to the students and then proceed to do a picture walk and then read the book. After reading the book you can then give each child their writing journal and allow them to write what they learned about hygiene from Jean and why they think hygiene is important. I would recommended this book, for kindergarten through third grade. Again, this is a great way to incorporate health curriculum into the class.

Bugs in my Hair!
Bugs in My Hair! - David Shannon

Bugs in my Hair! tells the hilarious story of a boy who gets head lice. Throughout the text, David Shannon depicts the pesky bugs as if they were humans. One illustration shows the lice lounging on the sofa, eating popcorn, reading a magazine, and watching TV. The book shows how the boy had to be treated to remove the bugs and how his mom had to clean everything to prevent the bugs from continuing to live. He eventually rids himself of the bugs, but they...COME BACK. I would like to read this text at the beginning of the school year to introduce students to the topic of head lice and discuss some preventative measures we can all take to keep bugs out of our hair. However, this would be a phenomenal story to use to discuss personification. The bugs in the story are given many human characteristics, so this would be a good text to investigate and identify personification. This text is on a 2.1 AR level.

Just Going to the Dentist
Just Going to the Dentist (Little Critter) - Mercer Mayer

Grade: Kindergarten

 

This book explains what happens when you visit a dentist office. It goes through the process of visiting the dentist, shows children what the dentist looks like, and shows children what dentists do when you visit. This is a great way to open a lesson on dental hygiene. I love the idea of reading this book to ease children's fears of going to the dentist if they've never been. After reading the story, the class will then discuss it  and answer any questions they may have about the dentist. We will also talk about why dental hygiene is important and why we should brush our teeth.  After the discussion, each student will be given a piece of a ceramic tile and have mustard squirted onto the tile. The next day, students will visit the tile again to see what it looks like. The teacher will explain that this is what happens to our teeth when we do not brush our teeth at night and food sits on them all night. Students will then be given a toothbrush and toothpaste to brush their “tooth” to see what it looks like when they brush their teeth.
