Dinosaur Douglas and the Beastly Bugs BOOK


In stock


Dinosaur Douglas and the Beastly Bugs book by Heather Maisner, illustrated by Alex Godwin.  A great gift for early years children (birth – approx 5 years).

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.
