I got this book for my son (he was 2 1/2 yr. at the time) so he would be prepared for the dentist when we went. He loved the book and wanted to read it over AND over, and loved finding the duck that is hidden in some of the pages. But it came SO helpful when my son cut his lip open and he had to go to the ER to get stiches. Before we left I grabbed this book to read while we were there because I had a feeling he would need stiches and we would talk about the part in the book when the boy gets a shot. It was SO helpful in trying to explain to our son what he needed to expect and he understood! My son is now 3 and still asks to read this book! I highly recommend it!

I have a two year old who has not yet been to the dentist. I bought this to help prepare her for her first dentist appointment. This is now one of her favorite bedtime books and she enjoys finding the "hidden" yellow duck on each page. I liked that they explained how the denist and hygenist wear masks, the bright light to see in patients mouths, and that the chair reclines. I had not even thought about how a young child may be intimated by these things.

Format: Paperback
Although this book gives a good chronology of what happens at the dentist, I found it cold and distant. Neither child's feelings are addressed. I was expecting a book that might describe how funny it feels to have someone poking around in your mouth, what the mouthwash tastes like or how wierd it is to go so far back in the chair. And there is absolutely no mention that either child might be nervous or scared. Instead it's just a list of statements. The older child needs a filling. Come on, HOW SCARY IS THAT? And yet the kid doesn't even blink.

This book is neither personal nor engaging.

If I had known it was like this I wouldn't have bought it.

This book isn't really a 'story'. It's just simply showing a process of kids making an appointment and then going to the dentist. There's no really exciting part or anything, but it would be a good book to show children who get nervous in new situations. Especially kids with autism or other behavior disorders. It gives them each step to the process that they can follow.

This book is really good for preparing a toddler for a first dentist visit, but wish they'd skipped the shot and drill part. Still, it seems to have really helped my daughter get ready for her first visit.

We read this to our three year old during the week before his fist visit to the dentist (skipping over the pages about having a cavity filled). It really helped him to get accustomed to the idea and to know what to expect. I recommend it.
