Anita is a typical kid who loves sweets and is not a fan of brushing her teeth Anita is excited for her school photo; she can't wait to smile with her classmates for the camera. When Anita checks her smile in the mirror before school on photo day, she can't believe her eyes and the disaster that has befallen her. What will happen if she can't share her smile? Will Anita find a solution to this problem? What can we learn from her along the way?
"The Girl Who Found Her Smile" is an inspirational story to engage young people on the subject of oral hygiene and life-long good habits that will keep their teeth clean and their smiles big and healthy. Kids can identify with Anita and her wish to have a shining smile for the school photo. The story ends with an educational page about how to keep your mouth healthy, including information about cavities, how to avoid getting one, and steps to correctly brush your teeth. At the back of the book, there are twelve pages for kids to write their monthly "Healthy Smile Pledge" to set their own goals, practice new habits, and set themselves up for success and a life-long healthy smile.
