"Crunch crunch crunch. Teeth are strong and sharp. Crunch crunch crunch. Teeth can help you chew. But teeth are not for biting. Ouch! Biting hurts." Sooner or later, almost all young children will bite someone--a friend, a parent, a sibling. This upbeat, colorful, virtually indestructible book helps prevent toddler biting and teaches positive alternatives.

It gives reasons why children might want to bite. Little mouths feel sore when new teeth come in; sometimes kids bite when they're hungry, tired, cranky, frustrated, angry, bored, distressed, or seeking attention.It suggests positive things children can do instead of biting: chew a chewy toy, drink a cold drink, get a hug, tell a grown-up. This book also includes helpful tips for parents and caregivers.

An excellent teaching tool for a biter! I have used this with my two and a half year old, and it has helped him understand why he shouldn't bite.
