THE TOOTH BOOK is a predictable book, as it says in the title, it is a book about teeth. This is a story of a boy who learns all about teeth, who has them, and who does not. He travels high and low, east and west, in the sky and in the ground, just to see who has teeth. Nearer to the end, he learns that he loses his teeth, and gets a whole new set of them to fill his mouth. The illustrations in this book are wonderful because of the exaggeration of teeth, and what they are used for. The artist drew the teeth in larger proportions to make sure the young readers can see them, and relate to the characters in the story. This would be a good book for students in grades one through three because that is when most students lose a lot of their teeth, and maybe they don't know why. ( )

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.
