Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Donna T. Brumby
Sam, star of the "Sam's Science" series, is excited about his first wiggly tooth. Sam knows this means he will begin loosing his baby teeth and grow his big teeth. As Sam prepares for bed, he and his mom discuss dental health and hygiene. Sam is determined not to lose any of his new teeth. McEwen's simple colored pencil and watercolor illustrations add just the right amount of humor and appeal to Rowan's excellent text. There's a lot of information here, including some slightly technical terms and concepts, but the presentation maintains length, vocabulary and interest appropriate to the age level. This cute book should please parents seeking additional information for sharing with growing youngsters.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-These picture books contain simple facts loosely tied to health-science themes. In Cells, Sam's complaint about his sweater shrinking leads Mom to explain that his bones, muscles, and skin are all growing. Drawings show how cells grow and split to make more cells. Sam giggles when his mother's pants split and exclaims, "You're growing out instead of up!" In the second book, a wiggly tooth at bath time leads mother and son to a discussion about fluoride; brushing; the parts of a tooth; and, finally, sharks, which keep growing new teeth all of their lives. Labeled drawings show the layers of a tooth as well as placement in the mouth. The information presented in the books is simple and accurate. The colorful cartoons, mixed with text in a handwritten style, make them inviting. Unfortunately, the similarity of poses, clothing, and expressions (Mom has exactly the same look on her face whether sorting laundry or speaking to Sam) rob the characters of any personality. Useful additions for libraries building science/health collections for the very young.-Nancy A. Gifford, Schenectady County Public Library, NY Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Sam tackles a new subject in the Sam's Science series (I Know How We Fight Germs, 1999, etc.); this time, he and his mother put their easy banter to good use in a running conversation on proper dental hygiene, as well as details about adult and baby teeth, parts of a tooth, types of teeth, and their functions. Following the formula established earlier in the series, the mother is full of information, while Sam is full of jokes; his question, "What's the floor stuff for anyway?" prompts her explanation of fluoride. Other related terms•e.g., plaque, enamel, dentin, incisors•are accentuated in bold letters within the text for easy identification. "Holes" in the teeth are referred to throughout, though never labeled as cavities. The importance of brushing is emphasized; flossing is not mentioned. Simply drawn diagrams of teeth fit easily into the friendly cartoon format, rendered in the colors of every toothbrush on the rack. (Picture book. 4-7)
