Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Louise is a pigtailed, pint-size alligator with new gleaming-white baby choppers—which, unfortunately, give her a tendency to... how to put it? Gnaw. On everything. Everyone. Everywhere. (A bite-size hole on the jacket suggests that it, too, has succumbed to Louise's insatiable maw.) In wryly well-bred cadences that are a hoot to read aloud, Palatini (Piggie Pie) goes on to chronicle how Louise's biting manages to drive everyone around her to the brink, including an entire beach full of day trippers (Louise was sorry. She was really, really, truly quite sorry). Reinhart (the Encyclopedia Prehistorica pop-ups) gleefully records the mayhem with nicely nutty watercolor-and-ink cartoons that take full advantage of Louise's propensity to go for the gluteus maximus. The story looks like it's headed down an overly familiar lane when Grandmama Sadie positions herself as the only gator who truly understands Louise (This is only a phase my little joy is going through, she avers, chucking Louise under her scaly chin). But instead of the expected heart-to-heart, Louise takes a chomp out of Grandmama too. Lots of fun—and certain to be the object of repeat-reading demands. Ages 4-7. (Sept.)

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1—Louise, a small alligator, is a wonderful child "most of the time." However, she has a proclivity for biting everything and everyone as she adjusts to her new teeth. Her mother frequently admonishes her with the phrase, "No biting, Louise!" The youngster feels guilty for her actions and tries to control herself, but the "temptation to nibble" is just too strong. Finally, Grandmama Sadie assures everyone that Louise will outgrow her nasty habit. This eventually proves to be true, until she develops another penchant (for burping). Reinhart's cartoon illustrations feature a lime-green Louise dressed in red overalls and a Grandmama whose teeth fly out of her mouth, "oooooowwww!" Children are certain to laugh at Louise's antics.—Donna Atmur, Los Angeles Public Library

It is truly a must have for parents and teachers of young children!

I am trying to teach my child not to bite when she is upset, not that she will eventually grow out of it.
KHow
The story line of the book is that Louise learns not to bite and instead replaces it with burping.

This book is very cute and colorful. It is about a little alligator named Louise who has started to bite because of her brand new white chomper. The reason I am not a fan of this book is because the moral of the story is that biting is something you will grow out of. I am trying to teach my child not to bite when she is upset, not that she will eventually grow out of it. Stick with "Teeth Are Not for Biting".

I have worked with children for many years, first as a preschool teacher and now as a therapist working with very young children. I LOVE this book! This is a silly, fun, yet educational book that teaches children about biting! Presented in a fun manor, the book tells the story about a young alligator named Louise who has a bad habit of biting. I have used this book for years in many classrooms with a variety of children to discuss biting and open the conversation about what is okay to bite and what is not okay to bite. It is one of my personal favorite children's books and is perfect for any teacher or parent working with children that have a tendency to bite. It is truly a must have for parents and teachers of young children!
