About this project
STRETCH GOAL of $1,500! If we are able to meet a stretch goal of $1,500 before the end of the campaign we will look into getting hardcover books for "Curious Conditions: Dentist"! WE CAN DO THIS!
Fulfilling a Child’s Curiosity at the Dentist
My name is Janky and I'm an award winning children's author! Going to the dentist can be frightening and intimidating for any child, but visiting the dentist is so important especially at an early age. The startling fact is that a child can start getting cavities as early as age 2!
I’m writing Curious Conditions: Dentist to help children learn about the process of going to the dentist and learn about keeping their teeth nice and healthy. By reading this fun, colorful, and adventurous story, a child will be more familiar with visiting a dentist and will help reduce any anxiety or fear. Let’s make going to the dentist fun. This will be a great story to get your child ready for their annual check-up!
Curious Conditions: Dentist
is a story about a young boy embarking on his first dental visit. His
anxiety and fear turn into curiosity while getting a tour of the dental
office. During his tour, his natural curiosity leads him to ask many
many questions! The dentist is here to answer and explain his many many
Target age for the book: 4-10 years
Your contribution funds will be used for the art supplies to finish creating the magical illustrations, format the digital book, and print and deliver the book to you and your loved ones at home.
