Open Wide!


ML loves going to the dentist. Recently, I had a dental appointment. She didn’t. She cried all the way to school.

Open Wide! A Look Inside Animal Mouths by Catharine Ham highlights a variety of animals’ mouths. ML was more interested in looking at the photographs than reading the poetic text. She loved the cheetah. My favorite was the elephant. Who knew such a big animal has such a small mouth?

Can you study animal dentistry? It might be the perfect fit for ML.

  1. Cool book! Thanks! By the way, the dentist we used to go to (he’s retired now) also did dental work for Koko the gorilla and the dolphins at Marine World. I don’t know if he had to have any special training for that.
