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 2yo daughter loves this series of books because of the colorful illustrations as well as the relatability of the topics. A great tool to explain how our bodies work to young kids. I also like how the mandarin used is simple to read and to understand
My son loves going through this series over and over again especially attracted to the facts about animals are pooing too. I like it covers each topic in depth with simple language and graphics.
A wonderful collection for my boy to learn more about the different parts of the body. Loads of information and can be used for different ages! Love the great service and customised note by Linxin! :)
It has been pleasant dealing with Linxin, who dropped me messages very soon after I placed my order, and even personalised stickers addressing to my kids. Books arrived in amazing conditions, and would definitely repurchase. Keep up the good work!!
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!
