  3. Friday 5/8: Brush Book Bed
    1. Reading to children can create positive memories and routines in uncertain times. Nightly habits – like reading a book, brushing teeth, and consistent bedtimes – are one way to help kids and families maintain a sense of normalcy when many things are out of their control. Your pediatrician can also provide guidance on tips for oral health, literacy, and establishing routines so don’t skip your well-child visits #SafePedsHealthyKids
