Overview

Cuddles the Cat Goes to the Dentist: A Dental Guide for Parents and Children by Sean Kelly

Cuddles the cat visits the dentist, brushes her teeth twice a day, and keeps the sugar bugs away.

But then there’s Cuddles’ best friend, Bob. When it comes to taking care of his teeth, he doesn’t do a great job. Bob often forgets to brush, so his teeth are turning brown, but the dentist helps him turn his frown upside-down!

With the help of Cuddles and Bob, teach your children the value of keeping their teeth healthy and clean. Author and practicing dentist Sean Kelly provides useful FAQs to guide parents and children to a happy and (hopefully) cavity-free mouth.

About the Author

Sean Kelly is a dentist who barely remembers a time he didn’t have at least one pet cat. As a dentist practicing just outside of Vancouver, Canada, he found that many parents had the same questions about caring for their children’s teeth. Sean wanted a fun way to introduce children to the dentist while at the same time educating their parents about children’s dental care.

This book was a delight for my kids, but it also had pages of useful info for parents at the back. A lot of common questions about kids' dental health are covered, so adults can get as much out of the book as kids do. And Cuddles is totally cute!

This a delightful picture book telling a story in cute rhyming couplets that teaches kids the importance of dental care. BUT, it also has pages of valuable information at the back for us parents to read, including a whole page of excellent FAQ's and great answers given by the dentist/author. Definitely a favorite with my kids, and with me too.

A cute book for kids about dental care. The Dr. Suess-like rhymes used to tell the story of Cuddles and Bob are amusing. Warm colorful illustrations, though a bit unpolished, will appeal to children. Information for adults and caregivers is included too.

Fun way to teach your child the importance of dental health. Great illustrations, fun rhyming text and several good checklists in the back for parents.

How I wish I'd been read this story before I visited the dentist as a child with too many cavities. It would have helped me to understand the importance of brushing, which I hated and tried to avoid. The rhyming couplets tickled my parental funny-bone, too, as I love to read stories to children that rhyme. I think it makes them remember the words better and thus the message. With well-drawn pictures throughout, the book was enjoyable from start to finish.

This book is targeted for parent readers to get their child to buy into oral hygiene. I have to say it’s pretty cute. Each page has nice rhyming couplets and as most of us know, kids really like the cadence of language and learn a lot with this rhyming, rhythmic approach. Read it a few times and your child will likely be able to recite it right along with you. This is good because the message about brushing teeth and avoiding certain foods it one well worth having internalized. The drawings on each page are simple, colorful and should appeal to the young audience. I don’t know if there is a sequel but the book could benefit from an expansion to address the right ways to brush (either manually or with the electronic tooth brush.) So then one would not only know why to brush but also how to brush. Anyway, for those who want to highlight the importance of regular brushing to their very young children I definitely recommend ‘Cuddles the Cat Goes to the Dentist’.

A cute story with fun illustrations to encourage children to take good care of their teeth along with a Parent's Guide to Children's Teeth at the back of the book. I would have rated it higher but there were formatting problems with the guide at the back.
