What If You Had Animal Teeth!? is an excellent book that will engage even the youngest readers in animal research. Readers will learn interesting facts about some familiar–and not so familiar–animals and how their teeth help them to survive.
The animals featured in this book (beavers, sharks, narwhals, elephants, rattlesnakes, naked mole rats, vampire bats, hippos, tigers, crocodiles, and camels) all have very different teeth, and students will enjoy comparing the animals and thinking about what it might be like to have the chompers they see on the pages.
If you’re a librarian planning on using What If You Had Animal Teeth!? as a read-aloud, be prepared for lots of questions. It’s also a good idea to have some easy-reading nonfiction titles on each of the featured animals available for checkout immediately after presenting this book to the class/group.
