From the author of The Scrambled States of America, here is a fun-filled introduction to teeth

“Before the principal’s announcements, will you all please stand and recite our pledge: ‘I pledge allegiance to this mouth and to the dentist who takes care of us. And to the gums on which we stand, strong and healthy, with toothbrushes and toothpaste for all.’”

It’s time for tooth school and Dr. Flossman is excited to meet the incoming class of thirty-two—eight incisors, four canines, eight premolars, and twelve molars, including the four wisdom teeth. There’s just so much to learn—from brushing and flossing to dentin and pulp to every student’s nightmare: tooth decay!

Best listened to with a toothbrush in hand, this hilarious book is full of interesting facts (for instance, George Washington’s teeth were not made of wood, despite popular belief) and a classroom full of quirky characters. Young readers will laugh their way to a better appreciation for those pearly whites that beckon them to brush. And from there it’s just a short hop to flossing.
