Tales of a Toothmouse

Tales of a Toothmouse

Everyone knows how important and imperative it is to take care of our teeth. A wonderful way to communicate this to your children is by reading great books. From the description:

Tales of a Toothmouse is a delightful story about Timothy Toothmouse that aims to educate children about teeth and the need for dental hygiene, in a fun and whimsical way.

When I saw the title of this book, I wondered what a  'Toothmouse' was.  Take a look at a segment of the introduction in the picture below.


A few of the Tales are called:
Quest for nice clean teeth
Reward money
Tooth-cleaning time
Fluffy slippers

In the conclusion of this delightful book is a section called "Learning Time". It includes fast facts, questions and answers.
