Clear, bright, appealing science. Sam wants to know why- and Mum explains. My six year old daughter generally prefers stories to non fiction but she loves these. And despite having a science degree myself, I learned (or remembered) some things too.

This covers the stuff that all books on teeth seem to cover - that you lose your baby teeth, a bit about how to brush your teeth and why teeth decay, that sugar causes tooth decay and that there are different types of teeth. No inaccurate information that I spotted. Like most books on the subject I've seen there's actually surprisingly little on why you need to brush teeth - it talks about plaque and acid but very briefly but, for example, doesn't really explain much about what plaque actually is (ok I admit it, I got this book to try and find the answers to all my son's endless questions about teeth!).

I've got a three and a half year old and I think he was slightly too young for this book. First the book starts with Sam having a wobbly tooth - and although my son knows that your baby teeth fall out when you are a bit older, it is all a bit distant and not that relevant yet. Most of the information is presented as a conversation, which I quite like on the whole, but can be a bit confusing for that age group (e.g. Sam talks about 'floor stuff' which turns out to be fluoride for instance) and he was a bit puzzled by the picture of plaque depicted as monsters, with me having to explain that monsters don't live in people's mouths.

The tone of the writing and the style of illustration are pleasant enough, my son listened happily to it and I have yet to find any great books on the topic, so I'd possibly recommend for a slightly older child but not a three year old.

Used this book as an aid to teaching children at my placement about toothbrushing, they all loved the book! were able to understand it. i did have to miss out a little bit as children are no longer encouraged to rinse their mouths but was easy to do. the children remembered the story well and were able to relate to it and refer to it when completing follow on activities. a very good book for children (even 3 year olds were able to listen)
