Publisher Description:
"Crunch crunch crunch. Teeth are strong and sharp. Crunch crunch crunch, Teeth can help you chew. But teeth are not for biting. Ouch Biting hurts." Sooner or later, almost all young children will bite someone--a friend, a parent, a sibling. This upbeat, colorful board helps to prevent or break the biting habit. Author Elizabeth Verdick gives reasons why children might want to bite. Little mouths feel sore when new teeth come in; sometimes kids bite when they're hungry, angry, bored, or seeking attention. She suggests positive things children can do instead of biting. Like chewing a chewy toy. Drinking a cold drink. Getting a hug. Telling a grown-up. Asking for help. And smiling... because while teeth are not for biting, they definitely are for smiling. Ideal for reading aloud, virtually indestructible, this book also includes helpful tips for parents and caregivers.
