Pretty funny book

This is a cute book that helps me to reinforce the importance of dental hygiene and regular brushing with my daughter. The dentist and the crocodile both have similar dialogue but from different ends of the spectrum so it’s quite good for teaching empathy too.

Simple yet interesting

Very simple book that is easy for younger children to understand. I have been reading this book to my 4 yr old since he was 2yrs old. It is still one of his favourite books in the house. Good reminder for him to practice good hygiene

super cute story of the crocodile and dentist being afraid of each other! each sentence repeats itself, once from the perspective of the crocodile and once from the dentist, which makes it perfect for the parent and child to read the book together, with the parent speaking each sentence first. also a good book to remind kids on dental hygiene, though i wouldn’t want them being overly afraid of dental visits.
