Reviewed by Vernita Naylor for Readers' Favorite If you have a toddler that you want to teach and have them to learn about teething or biting, Toofs by J.R. Poulter is ideal. While Baby Wolf is teething, everyone in the family is a victim. Baby Wolf will bite anything in his sights. His big brother, Bro, wants the baby to stop so that he can play freely. This beautifully illustrated children's book by Italian illustrators and book designers Monica Rondino and Andrea Pucci, and Australian authors J.R. Poulter and E.A. Poulter, helps to set the stage around the subject of biting. Something must be done to stop Baby Wolf, so dad has a plan and so does mom. Mom’s plan is simple. She says that teething is temporary. So this is the plan. As Baby Wolf begins to get prepared to bite and before he starts, put up your hand and say STOP! This is a great book because, outside of teething, biting is a big issue today for children and even some adults are biting as well. In schools and in childcare, children are resorting to biting to resolve conflicts. Biting has become the answer to conflict resolution problems. Due to the background that the authors have in the childcare and kindergarten industry, they are extremely well aware of the harm that biting does in the educational system. “To all parents everywhere with a teething child! I understand, I had five of them!” says author J.R. Poulter. From childcare provider and teacher to parent, this is a great way to introduce the subject, and teach about biting and how to stop the problem.
