Here's how we used 牙齿的故事 to encourage my younger son to brush his teeth!

The other day my younger son (age 4) was resisting the morning routine a little... after a period of silence he asked, "Mama, why do we have to brush our teeth, TWICE a day?" In my mind, I was trying to launch into a long explanation of how plaque builds up on our teeth and how cavities are formed, but I looked at his curious face with slight annoyance, and took a deep breath. How on earth do I motivate this little guy to WANT to brush his teeth daily without overwhelming him with the information? I suddenly remembered that we had 牙齿的故事 stashed away and we dug it out. We had read this title many times before, and immediately zoomed into the pages comparing the little girl and little boy's dental habits at 4 years old. It really hit home for him cos the kids were as old as him! We contrasted the dental habits, and then counted the cavities the little boy had in the following page. "你要像爷爷一样不刷牙，蛀牙多多，还是要像奶奶一样好好刷牙，那牙齿就干干净净，漂漂亮亮的？” It was crystal clear to my son what he had to do. With a silent smile, he immediately proceeded to the bathroom to brush his teeth. No nagging needed! 牙齿的故事 is 1 of 8 detailed and hilarious books of the 我喜欢的身体 bookset, translated from Japanese. Check it out, you won't be disappointed! #morningroutinewoes #teachablemoment #parentingwin #mystorytreasury #chinesekidlit #绘本 #bilingualparents #bilingualkids #sgmummy #sgparents #dropeverythingandread
My 3 year old daughter loves this series! Attractive illustrations and funny facts that make learning about normal everyday stuff fun. Definitely worth every penny paid. She normally wouldn't ask us to read Mandarin books but ever since getting this series, she asks for it on a daily basis. Thanks too mystorytreasury for the personalised note that came with the books - it was a lovely touch!
These books are just lovely! The pictures are captivating and there's lots of information. Great for flipping through at 3 yo and introducing terms. But a bit hard to just read the Chinese and expect a 3 yo to understand fully. But a keeper for sure and definitely no regrets buying :)
Cute and educational!
My girl loves the books in the body parts set.. especially the one about teeth... and poop! She was intrigued with the fact that Yeye in the book had false teeth, and that the elephant’s poop is so big and round. The illustrations are easy for her to understand. As she is only 2, I don’t read word for word. I’ll tell her stories through the pictures. The books have long mileage, I can foresee my girl still reading the books even at P1. I love it too
