The Tooth Book

Every child studies dental care in school and this lively picture book makes learning how to care for your teeth fun. Taking good care of your teeth and gums is an important part of maintaining overall health. After all, you need your pearly whites to eat, smile, and talk. But what should you expect when you go to the dentist? What should you do if you lose a tooth? Full of straightforward advice and animated, colorful art, as well as some bite-sized bits of history and lore, this guide provides accessible information about taking care of your teeth. The much-needed dental advice in this book is both timely and accessible to today's children. The "Monster Health Book," companion title to "The Tooth Book," was named a Bank Street Best Children's Book of the Year and earned shining reviews.
Product Details


K-Gr 4-In this brightly illustrated picture book, Miller goes well beyond the basics of brushing, flossing, and visiting the dentist. Readers view the inside of a tooth and learn about primary and permanent teeth, decay, losing teeth, and dental first aid. Especially welcome is the emphasis on eating healthy foods and avoiding sugar. The pages are loaded with fun facts and historical tidbits. Who knew that barbers removed rotten teeth in the 1200s or that Queen Elizabeth I ate too many sugar cubes? The cleanly designed, computer-generated artwork is appealing, lively, and instructive. Close-up images depict smiling children with stylized features caring for their teeth, and labeled diagrams colorfully convey information. One illustration uses arrows to demonstrate how to brush correctly, and a real X-ray image shows youngsters what a cavity looks like. This entertaining introduction to a potentially dry subject makes an informative resource for educators and a fun read for kids.-Barbara Katz, Parish Episcopal School, Dallas, TX Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
