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.

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

The book isn't formatted, in landscape mode it's a mess with a picture on one page and a few lines on the next. It's best viewed in portrait mode but the illustration and text still only fill half the screen. The colourful illustrations are pretty good, so its a shame.
The story itself is a bit average though, a kid refuses to brush his teeth then has a dream one night where he is in a toothbrush forest. The toothbrushes are all upset and want to know why he doesn't want to use them. A teacher toothbrush tells him he should brush his teeth. The brushes don't give any details of the benefits of brushing your teeth or the consequences of not doing so. Ethan seems to only suddenly want to brush his teeth so as not to upset these creatures again if he ends up there in another dream, it would have been better if he understood and made the brushing decision for the right reasons.

Still if you're going to expand the fantasy that inanimate toothbrushes have feelings and are alive, want to be your kids friend as a method to make them brush their teeth this would be a decent starting point.

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.

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.

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.

Nice story of a boy who wound't brush his teach. My boys liked it very much. Although my boys would brush their teeth they would make a lot of fuss and it was difficult for me to get them to go to the bathroom. The books seems to be doing the trick. They are now interested in doing it. Very entertaining little book.

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.
