Children's LiteratureWritten for the young reader, the text in this simple book is short and to the point, with the large colorful photographs being the main focus on each page. Descriptive words like "bigger," "stronger," and "flat" are typed in bold font for emphasis. Readers will learn about human teeth as well as animal teeth. The up-close photographs of elephant tusks, snake fangs, and piranha teeth help the reader realize the different types of teeth in the animal world. A human mouth is photographed, identifying teeth and empowering the young reader with vocabulary like incisor, canine, and premolar. There are suggestions on caring for teeth, including going to the dentist regularly, brushing twice a day, and eating healthy foods. By all means, this book is for introductory purposes only and would be best suited for preschool use. For those looking for simple, non-fiction texts, this is a good start. A table of contents, glossary, and index are included. It is part of the "Starters" series. 2004, Smart Apple Media, Ages 2 to 5.
