Melvin the Magnificent Molar, by Julia Cook and Laura Jana, MD.
I was introduced to Melvin the Magnificent Molar, by Julia Cook and Laura Jana, MD. through Twitter Moms, and I'm glad I was. It is a great book to introduce your children as to what happens with their teeth.
Greatly illustrated, Melvin takes you through the process of what your child needs to do to keep their teeth healthy and clean. As in, brushing the "green sleeping scummies" off their teeth, a well drawn out description of what happens when they go to the dentist, and your child writing the tooth fairy a letter. There also is a really great song for your child to sing while they are brushing their teeth.
My daughter LOVED the book. The minute she saw it, she sat down and read it. Then she brought it over to me and asked me questions about the different things in it that she did not understand. I think the writing style and pictures are perfect for children to read and look at and understand on their own. Even though my daughter has already started going to the dentist, she enjoyed the book. I highly recommend this book for anyone who has a child that is going to the dentist or even has already been to the dentist.
Disclaimer: I was provided a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
