When you wake up in the morning and it’s quarter to one
And you want to have a little fun
You brush your teeth — ch ch ch ch ch ch ch ch ch
Later in the day this Saturday -at 2:00 p.m., actually, you’ll be able to find out the right way to brush and floss and what to eat to preserve those pearly whites at our Children’s Department. Although this program is for kids 5 to 12, my most favorite book about teeth is for 3 to 6-years-old or so: Clarabella’s Teeth.
As you can see from this cheerful picture, Clarabella is dutifully brushing her teeth. Too bad she has so many of them, it takes her all day and she misses out on other fun. That is until her friends come to her rescue.
Here are some other interesting facts about teeth:
George Washington did not have teeth made out of wood, but he did have teeth made out of hippopotamus teeth, ivory, lead and cow and sheep’s teeth.
A Chinese dentist once built a tower of 28,000 teeth.
The tooth fairy pays on average about $2 per tooth.
