My Doctor & Me {a new ABC book}

Top 5 reasons I love an alphabet book:

They're fun to read.
The kids pick up on the patterns & start to predict what comes next.
They teach letters & sound with alliteration and picture clues.
They're perfect to start a lesson when you want a spin off activity.
There are so so many out there...and now there's one more!  :)

How adorable is this alphabet book called My Doctor and Me ABC?!


The author, Stephanie Cox, is a doctor herself.  Plus, her daughter was in kindergarten last year so she knows exactly what our target audience {ie. the littles at your feet} need to know.  The book cleverly works in eating well & exercise as well making healthy choices like getting enough sleep and wearing sunscreen.  Look at these cute illustrations!

I plan to use this book multiple times throughout the year.  As I'm introducing the alphabet to my kindergarten students, it'll work perfectly with my other ABC books.  But we're all teaching a health unit, at least informally {wash your hands, cover your mouth, don't eat that}, and you can totally pull this back out again to highlight different lessons.  My Doctor and Me ABC is great for teaching  vocabulary, easing fears of children who are nervous to visit the doctor and just giving kids an overview of what they'll be experiencing as they get their regular checkups.

As a farewell to summer she has graciously agreed to let me give a copy away to one of you!  Just like this blog {via Google connect or Blog Lovin, whichever you prefer} & leave your email in a comment below!  The winner will be announced Sunday, August 17th.

  7. I am keeping my fingers crossed to win. We are going to focus on healthy eating this year. Our district is creating a wellness committee. I love alphabet books on top of that.
