I grew up reading and listening to the Little Critter books so when I wanted to get a present for one of the children I work with, this was the series I went for (and of course I had to read it before I gave it to him. That's just responsible gift-giving.)
This was a very good book, especially to read before taking a child to the dentist for the first time. The story goes through some of the things to expect when going to the dentist and doesn't sugar-coat things. It recognizes that some things are kind of scary, but there are cool things too like spitting and x-rays, and that it really isn't a bad experience.
Great illustrations, as usual for Little Critter books. A very good read.
