This book doesn’t have the same feel as other Dr. Seuss book have. The flow is a lot different. But this book explains a lot about teeth and why they are important. It even explains the teeth in animals. It makes children want to brush their teeth.

Summary: In this installment of Dr. Seuss it teaches the health, safety, and duties of taking care of your teeth and if you don't, they may fall out. When it comes to your teeth you do not want to play around. You only get 2 set of teeth....your baby teeth and adult teeth.

Personal Reaction: I love books that address the health and safety of the body. I think when it comes to kiddos, unless they see, watch, or hear of what could happen when you dont take care of your body, they do not believe you.

Extension Ideas: Use one of those body part human models to use while reading this book or any other body part related book. Until the child really understands about it they will not remember or retain it. ( )

A classic work by Dr. Seuss writing as Theo. LeSieg, with new illustrations by Joe Mathieu, about who has teeth, who doesn't, and how to keep the ones you have!

This is a really cute Dr. Suess book. It is all about teeth and all different kinds of teeth. It also teaches kids to take care of their teeth or else they will fall out.

"The Tooth Book" is a classic Dr. Seuss book except in this book he is trying to teach a underlying lesson about oral hygiene. It is a book all about teeth.

This is not my favorite Dr. Seuss book, but it is still cute. I like how this book teaches children all about the importance of caring for their teeth.

For the classroom, I would get a empty coffee can and put in slips of paper with a food or drink on written on them. I would have students take turns pulling out the slips of paper and say whether or not the food was good for your teeth or bad for their teeth. ( )
