The POP STAR reading program is an educational imitative that has been formed to impact the reading level of children in our service area. We have collaborated with our local Boys and Girls Clubs of Harlingen and San Benito to help select the children for this program. Selected children will receive (8) books a year as well as encouragement from Community leaders that reading is fun.
Since February is National Children’s Dental Health Month, the book selected was Berenstain Bears Visit the Dentist by Stan Brenstain. Gail Thomason from Harlingen Family Dentistry read the book and added a few explanations along with the reading. She presented the children with oral health care kits and a Willy the Walrus Book.
Hat’s off to Kathy Preddy, Pop Star Resource Development Director for creating such an outstanding program for children. Harlingen Family Dentistry is please to be a part of this endeavor.
