Are you searching for gift ideas for the upcoming holidays or perhaps a child’s birthday? Are you looking for clever ways to reward your child for having no cavities at checkup times? If bed time becomes war time due to difficulty with teeth brushing, try reading a book about achieving a sparkly smile or white healthy teeth.There is no need for dental hygiene to become a sore subject or a reason to run to the next room, let these awesome children’s books as listed in Babble help bridge the gap by making brushing fun.
Brush, Brush, Brush by Alicia Padron is a fun to read book that’s described as sing-songy. This catch book can help motivate your toddler to want to brush!
Open Wide – Tooth School Inside by Laurie Keller inspires children to take care of their teeth in this quirky, fun to read story filled with interesting facts about your pearly whites.
Melvin the Magnificent Molar teaches little kids how to keep their teeth happy and healthy. This book is written by Laura Jana.
In Pony Brushes His Teeth by Michael Dahl, a little pony learns how to brush his teeth by watching his father. This is a great learn by example book, that parents can use as they personally show their kids how to brush their teeth.
Clarabella’s Teeth written by An Vrombaut, about a toothy crocodile makes talking about brushing fun.
We can’t forget about good ole Dr. Seuss and The Tooth Book, a tooth book classic! Different from the other The Tooth Book: A guide to Healthy Teeth and Gums by Edward Miller which offers oral hygiene advice and history, a more straightforward approach than Seuss for sure!
There are other books of course that didn’t make this list, but hopefully you’ll see that perhaps making brushing fun by thinking outside of the box and inside the pages of a good book can help motivate your child to brush and brush well!
