Description

We love the Dinosaur Douglas books because they offer an exciting, fun way to explore health-related subjects for Early Years children, (birth – approx 5 years). The series including oral health, vitamin D, obesity, hand-washing and toxic stress. Written in rhyme and illustrated by international artist Alex Godwin, they are ideal for bedtime reading, PSHE and literacy.

A great gift for early years children

Dinosaur Douglas and the Beastly Bugs

This fun, rhyming story about a cheeky dinosaur, highlights the importance of looking after children’s teeth while developing good bedtime routines: reading with children and brushing teeth before bed. Both regular activities in the homes of the Growing Smiles team!

Children’s author Heather Maisner, alarmed at the state of children’s teeth in the UK – where dental decay and infection is the most common cause of hospital admission in primary school children each year – decided a new, dynamic approach was needed. Joining forces with Kate Barnard, Consultant in Paediatric Dentistry at Chelsea &
Westminster Hospital, she created this fun, rhyming story about a cheeky dinosaur.

Tooth decay can affect children in a lasting way, creating social inhibitions and problems with eating.

Our feedback on this lovely childrens book is reflected on what others have said below:

“This book is definitely the best children’s book we have read about the importance of brushing your teeth.”  said the British Dental Journal.

“The books get the message across very effectively and in a lively, age-appropriate way children will enjoy. They are great for use at home and also to instill basic principles for nursery and reception children.” Parents in Touch.

“Story books that convey a vital health message have to be convincing and well illustrated, and Heather’s use of rhymes combined with Alex’s terrific illustrations will ensure that they grab the children’s attention right from the word go . . . this is a sure-fire winner!” Books Monthly.

“The vivid, primary-coloured illustrations by Alex Godwin ideally complement the lively text . . . This is a highly recommended series.”  The School Librarian.

Dinosaur Douglas and the Yucky Mucky Fingers

When author Heather discovered that about 1.8 million children under the age of five die each year from diarrhea and pneumonia, the two top killers of young children around the world, she decided something dynamic needed to be done.

Joining forces with Paediatric Consultants at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, and with input from London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, she created a fun, rhyming story, about cheeky Dinosaur Douglas and the importance of washing your hands.

Educating young children about hand-washing with soap could stop the spread of disease – from the common cold to the more serious flu, hepatitis A and meningitis. Hand-washing with soap could protect about one out of every three children, who suffer from diarrhea, and almost one out of five with respiratory infections like pneumonia. It may even help prevent skin and eye infections.

“Heather’s splendid Dinosaur Douglas series continues to inform and educate young children . . . whilst at the same time telling a brilliant story in rhyme and with Alex Godwin’s superb illustrations helping to reinforce key points. The timeless lure of dinosaurs and the terrific added bonus of getting important health messages across continues!” (Books Monthly)

 

Dinosaur Douglas and the Rumble Grumble Tum

When Heather discovered the average five-year-old was consuming the equivalent of their body weight in sugar each year, she created a fun, rhyming story about Dinosaur Douglas, with input from Paediatric Consultants at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. Over-eating sugary food and drinks can lead to dental decay, weight gain and obesity, affecting children’s wellbeing, causing low self-esteem, bullying and missed school days. Yet this can be avoided by educating children, while they are very young. Dinosaur Douglas and the Rumble Grumble Tum uses the familiar, inimitable character of Dinosaur Douglas to encourage children to think about the food they eat, and to exercise.

“Story books that convey a vital health message have to be convincing and well illustrated, and Heather’s use of rhymes combined with Alex’s terrific illustrations… ensure that they grab the children’s attention right from the word go.” (Books Monthly)
