Book Description

May 1 2003 Best Behavior
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 biting and teaches positive alternatives. The companion to our best-selling Hands Are Not for Hitting Board Book, Teeth Are Not for Biting 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. Author Elizabeth Verdick 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.

Part of the award-winning Best Behavior series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical & Useful May 15 2003
Format:Board book
I found this book to be both educational and preventive. It offers young children concrete alternatives to their urges to bite others. It's designed to be read by a parent, guardian, or teacher, and it offers colorful illustrations by Marieka Heinlen.
Teeth Are Not for Biting approaches the issue of biting with great care and understanding. The book talks frankly about why children bite others, and also attempts to instill empathy into children who may be prone to biting. Probably the greatest strength of this book is its practical advice to children. Elizabeth Verdick presents alternatives to biting that are easy to understand, and more importantly, simple enough for most young children to do.
This book is a worthy new entry for preventing and teaching children about the harmful behavior of biting others.

4.0 out of 5 stars Helpful 4.5 stars!! Jan. 17 2014

I got this for my 20 month old, but read it to both him & my 3yr old - they both enjoy it.
The writing is great for keeping their attention, illustrations good support for what it is trying to teach (no pictures of biting just the positive stuff).
I like that it offers advice to the child on how to better react when the urge to bite might happen. I also like the tips for parents at the end of the book.
(Would of given it 5 stars, but I didn't like the part of 'let's count how many teeth you have' - because 1. he bites so I don't want to stick my fingers anywhere near his teeth to count, 2. I read this as a bedtime story most of the time & less interactive is better as I want him to get calm. But obviously not an issue for everyone, just for me (I skip over that part for now).)

4.0 out of 5 stars Teeth are for... June 4 2012
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
I was biting my friends in class and this book helped me remember biting is not nice. My mommy told me teeth are only good for brushing eating and smiling!! This book shows pictures that help me understand biting is not nice and that I can do other things if frustrated or cranky!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful Feb. 18 2009
By Ali
Format:Board book
Our 2 year old twins are in a biting phase and it is very difficult to find a way to teach them that biting is not acceptable. This book has been SO helpful to us, we read it every night so that they understand that "teeth are not for biting". I highly recommend this book if you are going through this tough phase with your little ones.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great series May 17 2009
Format:Board book
This is the second book of this series I have purchased. First one was Hands are not for hitting.
These really really work. Of course, I have a child who is really into being read to, but he understands and, answers the questions appropriately with the examples provided.
Both books worked within days for us, and even though he's not hitting or biting anymore, he still brings the books out for a read.
