Penelope's Toothache- Ariele Nolla

Penelope's Toothache is a cautionary tale warning what can happen to your teeth if you eat too much sugar.  Especially suitable for children age 4-7, the book offers an introduction to dental hygiene and the importance of looking after your teeth.

The only negative for me is how a visit to the dentist is portrayed as being a bit scary (although there is a section at the back telling children that dental practice no longer requires so many huge needles and urges them to go for regular check ups). 

Penelope's Toothache might well be a useful educational tool for supporting PSE and PD aspects of the curriculum in the foundation stage and KS1 or for parents to look at with their children to encourage good brushing and flossing.

Penelope's Toothache is out now in ebook format.


With thanks to the author for providing me with a copy of this book in return for an honest review.
