My 2 year old immediately loved this book. We take it to the bathroom and he looks at it while I brush his teeth and he practices on the pop up pictures. He shows everyone who comes to the house this book and talks about the pop up animals and how to brush. I highly recommend this book to any parent having problems getting their small kids used to brushing and flossing.

The age range for this book should be changed to ages 2 and up. My daughter loves to brush like a hippo and floss like a shark. This is the best book on teeth brushing I've ever seen. This is a great book to give as a gift to every toddler you know.

My 2 1/2 year old daughter wasn't being cooperative with having her teeth brushed until we got her this book. She loved it from the very beginning and repeatedly asked to read her "animal book". Her favorite is the shark who flosses. This book has been a tremendous success in helping us to teach our daughter to brush her teeth. I highly recommend it!

I used to work in a book store, and as far as I've seen this is by far the best teeth-brushing book on the market for wee littles. HOWEVER, I dislike the text and modify it. Surely you can have a book showing animals brushing their teeth without teaching them something untrue about science. I know I will get poo pooed by less sensitive parents, but why lie to your kid when you don't have to? I change each kind of an animal to an individual: ie, "Every lion brushes every tooth every day," becomes "Lion brushes..." Likewise, the repeated "Shouldn't you?" really grates on me. I skip it or say, "Can you?" I mean, which makes you more likely to do things, feelings of shame/obligation, or competance/being challenged?

All the moving parts work well in my copy. Several move in a way that are very difficult for little hands. One of the toothbrushes got ripped out when I let the baby hold the book for a moment by herself. I don't see this as a problem, as long as you categorize this as an activity requiring adult assistance. You can let your little one floss the shark's teeth and manipulate the moving parts on a couple of other "easier" pages as young as 1 year.

I would recommend this!

This is a fantastic way to get children to brush their teeth. My 2 1/2 year old daughter likes to brush her teeth but after we got this book she now LOVES to brush her teeth "like the lion!" This is a must have book!

My son (nearly 3) was resisting teeth brushing, so I decided to try this book. He loved the story and we were able to reference the characters in the book while brushing teeth. That seemed to help. The reason I didn't give it a better score was because of the poor quality of the moving items in the book. Most moving parts were difficult to move and the part on the last page simply would NOT move. Almost all pages are broken to some extent after 1 week of use. He still likes the book, but I'm a little dissapointed now.

This is one of my daughter's favorite books. We started reading the book with her, after we started brushing her teeth. She loves to brush the animals teeth, will use the lion's brush to brush mommy's or daddy's teeth and her own, and proudly shows her own teeth and smile in the mirror on the last page.
It would be great if each child who is starting brushing his/her teeth could have this book for him/herself!
