ABC’s of Health and Safety, by Melissa Abramovitz, puts our friendly ABC’s to a whole new purpose. This book helps teachers and parents teach important heath and safety lessons in a format familiar to elementary kids. Adults can read the rhymes aloud, kids can enjoy the cute pictures, while important information is presented and discussed. The artwork by Alexander Morris provides fun cartoons to illustrate the rhyming health and safety tips.
As we read along and turn the pages, we anticipate what each letter will represent. Kids will be wondering and guessing, too. It’s a good way to involve everyone in important health, hygiene, and safety guidance. Because some of the words may be unfamiliar to the younger audience, it will also help expand their vocabulary. I especially enjoyed “quiet quiescence.”
Thanks to Melissa Abramovitz and Alexander Morris for a new take on health and safety concerns using our old friends, the ABC’s.
