K-Gr 4- In this brightly illustrated picture book, Miller goes well beyond the basics of brushing, flossing, and visiting the dentist. Readers view the inside of a tooth and learn about primary and permanent teeth, decay, losing teeth, and dental first aid. Especially welcome is the emphasis on eating healthy foods and avoiding sugar. The pages are loaded with fun facts and historical tidbits. Who knew that barbers removed rotten teeth in the 1200s or that Queen Elizabeth I ate too many sugar cubes? The cleanly designed, computer-generated artwork is appealing, lively, and instructive. Close-up images depict smiling children with stylized features caring for their teeth, and labeled diagrams colorfully convey information. One illustration uses arrows to demonstrate how to brush correctly, and a real X-ray image shows youngsters what a cavity looks like. This entertaining introduction to a potentially dry subject makes an informative resource for educators and a fun read for kids.-Barbara Katz, Parish Episcopal School, Dallas, TXCopyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
