I recently had the opportunity to review the book, "Melvin the Magnificent Molar" written by Julia Cook & Laura Jana, MD. With Trevor loosing so many teeth these days and Vicky taking quite a notice of her own teeth now, I jumped on this opportunity.
The illustration is absolutely adorable! The kids giggled and smiled at the book while I read it to them. As for the story itself, about a tooth named, Melvin, you take a trip on the road to healthy teeth with a visit to the dentist, learning about brushing and flossing, and even the tooth fairy. "Melvin will speak to your child from a tooth's point of view, explaining all that is involved with maintaining a healthy smile."
The kids loved the book. Every night after supper I tell the kids it's time to go upstairs to brush their "Melvin"! LOL! They laugh every time!
Trevor has an appointment next week with the hygienist and this book couldn't have come at a better time. We'll definitely be reading it again before then, just to help calm him down and prepare him once again for his appointment.
I can honestly say that this book is totally worth it. I would totally recommend it to anyone who has a small child. It's never too early to start getting into good oral health habits.
