WHAT IF YOU HAD ANIMAL TEETH? Is a whimsical approach to teaching young readers about the shape and function of twelve different animals' front teeth.

Each two page spread features a photograph of the animal baring its teeth, a description (a naked mole rat's front teeth are shaped like shovels) and a fact (elephants are right-tusked or left-tusked) paired with a skilled and hilarious illustration of child counterpart displaying that animal's teeth.

Markle and McWilliam end the laniary lessons by showing children why their human teeth work best for them.
