Book Nook

book_nookWe believe that reading is important for children -- parents reading to their children, children reading with one another, and children reading by themselves -- so we've put together a list of our favorite books on dental health, visiting the dentist, losing teeth, good nutrition, and other similar topics. I hope you and your family enjoy reading these as much as we have. If you would like to recommend a book for our list, please send us an email ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
