I bought this book to give to my 18 mo old nephew, who sometimes enjoys brushing his teeth, but mostly likes to fight it! Little did I know, he would love this book more than all of his others and *insist* that my brother reads it to him every night! Can’t wait to buy more from D.M. Whitaker!
Getting your child to love brushing their teeth can be a bit difficult. You have to start early by making it an enjoyable every day routine. Singing makes everything fun in my opinion! This book, inspired by the author’s son, who must be a musical virtuoso, introduces this otherwise mundane task as something whimsical and fun. As I read the words to the song they sing about brushing your teeth, I found myself wondering what tune I would sing. To my surprise and delight, the lyrics and music are written at the end of the book in B Major and C Major! I’m glad…I think I would’ve butchered the song. The illustrations beautifully show this young black family establishing a family routine that I’m sure their son will continue as he grows into adulthood and raise his own healthy children. What a wonderful debut by the author! It is sure to be your child’s favorite new book to read at bedtime before they brush their teeth and go to bed.

This book is a favorite of our family. Brushing your teeth isn’t a fun thing to do, but it’s a must in our household. This book and song is a game changer! My little one loves brushing her teeth and I find my wife singing the song when she’s brushing her teeth and my daughter isn’t around, lol Great buy.
Love this adorable and helpful book. Gifted it to my sister to help her 2 boys who hate to brush to get excited about it and highly recommend. It’s been a blessing to our family!
We started reading the book downstairs in the living room. As soon as we made it to the second page, she took off running to her bathroom…which is upstairs lol. So I read the book while she brushed her teeth and she loved it. And I just found the actual recording on the website and she sounds much better lol. So next time I might play the song. Super cute though and I love the illustrations.
Love this! What a fun & cute way to encourage good dental health at a young age. Perfect gift for little ones! My daughter loves it and wants to read before and after teeth brushing daily!
This book is so well written and the quality of the pictures are impeccable. They are vibrant and colorful! Perfect Children’s book for all. I’m a teacher and I can’t wait to share this with my students on the importance of friendship and accepting others for who they are. I can’t wait to buy more for little people in my life. This book is a great gift for young children.
My son enjoyed the book!!! The animation and colors are great and I loved that the book was big enough for both my son and I could
hold and read together.
A MUST HAVE for your children’s library of books! We loved this book for our little one! The colors were very eye catching and the story was easy to follow. We only have one child and my wife sometimes worries about her ability to make friends, but this book will definitely help us teach her about making and keeping friends.
This is such a cute story about loving who you are. I love how the animals are special in their own way. A very cute book!!!
