Book Review: Brush Barry Brush by Linda Valderrama R.D. H.
Brush Barry Brush
Author: Linda Valederrama R. D. H.
Illustrations: Sudi Memarzadeh
Brush Barry Brush is a charming picture book for very young children which introduces the activity of daily living: brushing your teeth. The illustrations and the simple text make the concept easily understood. The text introduces foods that are healthy followed by different children brushing their teeth, that is until Barry. Barry eats blueberries and doesn't brush. Guess what? Barry's teeth look blue.
Barry then brushes and has a sensational smile with white clean teeth. Children will want to read the story over and over. This fun book also has a chart for keeping children on track. Fun stickers are included that can be used to mark when the child brushes after every meal. What a fun way to help young children learn to grasp and develop the healthy habit of brushing teeth.
This is a great concept picture book with a fun story and a lesson cleverly woven throughout. It also is a conversation launcher for the topics of nutrition, food groups, color and texture of foods, and likes and dislikes for young children and their parents.
