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!

The book is very factual giving room for parents to address their child(ren)'s fears. It does miss 2 important things that our toddler struggles with i.e. taking x-rays and dealing with the goopy floride gel at the end of the exam.

We got this for my 3.5 year old who needs to get a filling. The book is OK. He seems to like it, and it explains stuff and shows pictures. However, I think the Dora book http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0689871694/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 is much better, at least for his age, even though he's only seen Dora videos a couple of times. The content of the 2 books is similar, but This book uses more complex sentences, doesn't engage the kid as much, has less engaging pictures.

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.

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.

I got this for my two year old to give him an idea of what a dentist for when we go someday. He is terrified of any place that looks like a doctor's office. He loves reading this book. "Again!" I love how it breaks the visit down step by step; describing the chair that moves, a light, a bib, etc. Great find
