Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2-- How many teeth does one have during the various stages of life? That is the premise in this introduction that has been a mainstay in libraries serving children for nearly 30 years (HarperCollins, 1962). The update is long overdue. Changes in text are slight; the big transformation is in the book's overall appearance. The characters have been given an updated, more cartoonlike look, with new hairstyles and casual clothing. Gender and ethnic representation is more balanced, and the figures are more active. A baby formerly being held and fed is now feeding himself a bottle, Elizabeth has escaped her confining highchair, and readers see Sam brushing his teeth morning and night, rather than just a sketch of the sun and moon. But the biggest change is in the parents. Yesterday's stay-at-home Mom, in bathrobe, rollers, and lipstick, and Dad, in his business suit, have been replaced by a couple enjoying themselves at a picnic. Full-color watercolors replace Galdone's two-color drawings. All contribute to a striking uplift for an old standby, worth serious consideration. --Denise L.

The book alternates between a story line and a poem.

This was a wonderful factual book about teeth to explain the need to lose baby teeth to usher in the permanent grown-up teeth.

This book is an excellent educational tool. I am a public health dental hygienist and I use this book in grades K-2. The bright pictures and clever rhymes make it very entertaining for children. It is a great way to teach kids about their mouths and oral health!

When my 5 year old lost his first tooth, he was asking all sorts of questions: WHY did I lose a tooth, WHEN will I lose more....
Thi sbook answers those questions. It has a chart which looks inside the gums to show a new tooth pushing out the old. The book alternates between a story line and a poem. At the end it gets funny with a boy not being able to sing the rhyme like the others because he lost 2 teeth and he "thounds funny".
I let my son's reactions rate books: this is a 5.

My five year old is so excited about losing her teeth and getting in her "grown up teeth" that I thought she'd enjoy this little book. She definitely did and wanted to read it to everyone! Her kindergarten class surely enjoyed it.

Format: Paperback
This book has nice sections of text, teaching why babies don't need teeth, and what people use their teeth for, and how many teeth children need, and how teeth fall out, and why to care for our teeth. In between the text sections are adorable rhyming sections (my favorite part of the book). This book's content is limited, really, to counting teeth. But the rhyming parts are irresistible.

For a more comprehensive look at teeth, their jobs, and how to care for them (plus amazingly good illustrations), I receommend Edward Miller's "The Tooth Book". Why not get both?

Format: Paperback
I got this book for my 5 year old daugter to prepare her for the toothfairy and to show her what it is all about with teeth. This is well written and illustrated, even a 3 year old would get a great deal from this book, but a 5 or 6 year old would understand the more technical things like the picture of what a tooth looks like from the inside. It encourages good toothcare for kids and my daugter is beginning to read it by herself now.

We can only recommend this book (the entire series is great!!)

This was a wonderful factual book about teeth to explain the need to lose baby teeth to usher in the permanent grown-up teeth. For a cerebral kid like mine, this was a wonderful way to introduce the idea, as he was the first one among his friends to lose his teeth.
