It is often a struggle to find interesting ways to help young children learn the importance of taking care of their teeth. The new book, Bye, Bye Germs, is an engaging tool designed to teach children this lesson.
The story features Emma, a little girl who faces off with Jerry the Germ. She is joined by Timmy the Toothbrush and together they win the battle to save her beautiful teeth. This book is a starting point for adults to discuss the importance of oral care in kid-friendly terms and will help children learn the importance of brushing their teeth twice daily for a minimum of 2 minutes.

Individual books can be purchased for $5.00, and there are significant discounts if purchasing in bulk.
