Caillou isn’t a baby anymore. He wants to brush his teeth by himself. After breakfast and before going to bed, Caillou brushes little circles all over his teeth, just like Daddy! The ones in the back are harder to reach, but Caillou tries his best. Either Mommy or Daddy is always by his side to give him a guiding hand or some pointers for next time. Caillou even takes care to brush his dinosaurs’ big teeth!
Developed with the help of a pediatric dentist and a child psychologist, Caillou: I Can brush My Teeth illustrates how Caillou’s mastery of fine motor-skills allows him to gain more independence in small but important ways.

This is another addition in the Healthy Toddler series. Brushing your teeth is not the favourite thing for toddlers to do, at least it wasn't with my grandson. I wish I had had this book to read with him to help teach him the concept. Caillou brushes his teeth every morning and night. First mommy does it for him, cut he is not a baby anymore and wants to do it himself. Mommy or daddy always watch and help when he needs it. He learns quickly and even tries to teach his toy dinosaurs that they need to brush. Lots of bright colours enhance the large illustrations in this book. Another good one for the family library. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book via netgalley.
