Reviewed by Kristie Ingerto for Readers' Favorite

Ethan in the Kingdom of the Toothbrushes, written by Yael Manor and illustrated by Anahit Aleqsanyan, is the second book in the twins series and this is one that is sure to delight your child. Emma loves to brush her teeth and she brushes her teeth every morning and every night. However, Emma's twin brother Ethan does not like to brush his teeth and he has a tantrum each time he is supposed to brush his teeth. One night Ethan has an awful dream that he is all alone in a forest with a lot of toothbrushes. The next morning when Ethan wakes up he must make a decision about brushing his teeth now. Has he changed his mind about brushing his teeth?

Yael Manor does an excellent job with Ethan in the Kingdom of the Toothbrushes as it is informative and entertaining. The side effects of not brushing your teeth are shared in the story as well, including the fact that bacteria stays on them and having stinky breath. This book is a good resource to use in teaching the importance of dental hygiene in a fun way that is also on a child's level. Also, Anahit Aleqsanyan's illustrations are wonderful and jump right off the page at young readers and will be enjoyed by children.

Great book. My 4 yr old loves it and makes me read it to her every night. She now loves brushing her teeth and had me buy her a toothbrush that lights up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Learning the ‘pleasures’ of brushing teeth November 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Yael Manor is ‘60 years old, a math teacher for 35 years in high school, coach, mother of four children and grandmother of two.
Two of her children are twins - a son and daughter and my grandchildren are also twins - a boy and girl. It was only natural for me to use my imagination on my experiences with twins.’ And this is the second in what hopefully will be a continuing series of books as fine as the first two – about the idiosyncrasies encountered by twins. Yael Manor’s writing style is delightful and her stories are enhanced by the illustrations of Anahit Aleqsanyan.

Of the twins, Ethan does not like to brush his teeth while Emma happily brushes both day and night. Ethan is vocal about his loathing for the dental hygiene process though his mother warns him that bacteria will eventually destroy his teeth. Despite reinforcement from his father who informs him that all his relatives brush, Ethan balks – instead asking for a cookie, and of course his mother attempts to bargain stating he may have a cookie only if he brushes. One night Ethan (without brushing) has a dream where he is all alone in a forest – a forest of toothbrushes of every shape and size - and they admonish Ethan to brush, one reason being that his breath stinks! All of the toothbrushes plea with him to brush and suddenly Ethan awakens and asks his mother for a toothbrush. He brushes with every sort of toothbrush manifested in his dream and settles on one that has flashing lights. Ethan from now on will brush his teeth regularly and with gusto.

Yael Manor has taken on a recurring dilemma with teaching children to brush their teeth and made a fun story with the fantasy of a dream included. It works very well and likely will improve the habits of all children who read this charmer of a book. Grady Harp, November 13

5.0 out of 5 stars How cute! June 22, 2014
By Nicole
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a cute little story about a boy who didn't like brushing his teeth. Great for use for children who are going through a similar stage, or just for everyday reading. The illustrations were cute and the storyline was easy to follow. Author used repetition to make it more enjoyable for young readers as well. I will definitely be putting this on my daughter's e-reader.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Effective, Short Read March 3, 2014
By C Diva
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really like this book, because it is an effective, short read. A child who resists brushing her/his teeth should immediately relate to the little boy, Ethan, in this book, and to his ambivalence towards brushing his teeth, the text is quite lyrical, and song-like in places which makes some of phrases easy for a child to remember.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yet another cute read! August 19, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story is cute and tries to explain why it is important to brush your teeth. When Ethan doesn't want to brush his teeth, he has a nightmare which causes him to realize why it's important to brush your teeth. I read this to my 2 year old, while she was brushing her teeth and she thoroughly enjoyed it.

I got this book for free after seeing it on the Kindle Buffett list. We are having some difficulty getting our 3 year old in the habit of daily brushing and she protests the daily process A LOT! Therefore, I bought this book hoping it might help. There is no ehyming flow and the graphics are average however, we read it for the first time last night and I wasn't sure she got it until this morning when I held up her 3 toothbrushes and used comments from the book to get her to brush her teeth. She chose one of her toothbrushes and brushed without any fussing or protest. Who Hooo!!!!!

Ethan does not like to brush his teeth even though his twin sister Emma does. Mom and Dad try reasonable approaches like talking about why brushing is good or trying to bribe him but it doesn't work. Ethan goes to bed one night and dreams he is alone in a forest but soon realizes it's a forest of toothbrushes who talk to him. One is sad and asks why he doesn't want to use her. Another talks about being healthy, another tells him his breath smells bad etc. He wakes up the next morning and asks his mom for a particular toothbrush and brushes without a problem.
