Books About Cavities, Toothaches, and Dental Health Month

My son lost another tooth today.  Or rather, he pulled his bloody tooth out and directly put it in my hand.  

Yuck!  

I was grossed out momentarily before getting excited all over again about him losing another tooth. …But not excited that he pulled it.

Dental health month books for children

 

Pj after he lost his tooth..Very excited
Pj after he lost his tooth..Very excited

In our house, the tooth fairy is highly decorated;)

He writes letters to him/ her, he makes crafts, and he really learns more about Dental Health each time he loses a Tooth.

And the timing of this pulled tooth was great!!…Except that we were writing spelling words and blood got on his fingers which got on the table… which got on his spelling work…Honestly, I didn’t remember the bloody part of teeth loss until that.  None the less,  I did get pretty excited because…..

February is Dental Health Month.   Plus, I haven’t  taught him nearly enough about Cavities or Tooth Decay.   These are topics every kid absolutely needs to fully understand, right?!  They are also things WE can explore BEST by reading books.  His Favorite past time EVER!

 Books are great!!  Reading books help my son wind down (self regulate) from a busy day at school.  He is still, quiet, and I can even see his breathing slow when he reads by himself!  I make them very accessible so he can pick one up when he feels like its time to clear his head.  There are 5 children’s books on my kitchen table, 2 on the living rm floor, 1 on an end table, 1 in the bathroom, a stack more in his book nook area, and a self full in his room right now.  Let’s not forget the wonderful connection we get from reading to him at bedtime or the creation of life long memories and the instillation of educational values.   What’s not to love when he picks up a book to read?!?!

Books help regulate kids

 

 

In honor of my son and all the little book worms out there, I’m posting this book list.  This list will be about Tooth Decay and Cavities for Dental Health Month and Toothache Day.  Each month I will post a new list of books relevant to that months calender observances.  I hope his list will help your family enjoy reading as much as we do!!
