“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 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.

"I just bought this book today for my 19-month old who seems to be the problem "biter" and "hitter" at her daycare. I read it just now and loved it. The message is clear and simple that biting hurts and hugs and smiling are much better, so let's go do those things instead. :-) I wasn't expecting the awesome blurbs in the back for parents and caregivers on how to handle situations like these. I kept hearing that biting a child back shows them that biting hurts, but in my gut I never felt that was ok. And the blurb in the back of this book confirmed my gut feeling! It can confuse a child if you are biting them back, like sometimes biting is ok...which it is not. I really hope reading this to her when she bites can begin to get to the message through that tiny thick skull of hers heehee."

"Borrowed from the library. This book introduces an interesting concept: using the board book to teach more appropriate behaviour. LittleJohn is only just 9 months old and in the middle of teething. I'm not sure how much he got out of the advice in the book, but I got a lot out of it! There are even two pages at the back with tips for parents and caregivers. LittleJohn mostly gnawed on the book, himself, and I got some Borrowed from the library. This book introduces an interesting concept: using the board book to teach more appropriate behaviour.
