The Tooth Book is a good informational book to help children learn about different kinds of teeth. It shows what kinda of people have teeth and what kinds of animals have teeth. It also shows some animals that do not have teeth such as snails and octopuses. In the illustrations it shows what the animals or people are doing with their teeth. Reading goes beyond the text. Children must also look and comprehend the pictures to gain more insight. For example in the illustration of the beaver, you can tell that the beaver uses his teeth to chop down the wood from trees. A child can also see that an alligator has different teeth from humans. Alligators have sharp teeth while humans have straight teeth for different purposes. This book is good for beginning readers because the words are easy to comprehend but even if one cannot read all the words they can use the pictures to tell them what is being said.

Hwh has teeth? everyone. The book by Dr Seuss stresses the importance of teeth. What better way to teach their importance. Every child loves Dr. Seuss.

A book that I hope everyone has read at one point in their life because it is so amusing, and educational at the same time. This teaches about an important aspect in children's lives, personal hygiene it also makes a normally scary experience not so terrifying. Kids are often afraid of the dentist but this book makes it seem like a friendly and fun experience by pointing out all the things teeth are good for.

Great book to explain about teeth to young children. Fun examples of how everyone has teeth and what they can be used for. I would highly recommend this book- especially before a dentist trip! ( )
