Little Books for Little Cooks ~ The Tooth Book

Little Books for Little Cooks Little Books for Little Cooks is a bi-monthly feature that focuses on creating some edible fun with your little one.   We will share a fun book to read with your little one along with a cooking activity to do that ties in with the featured book. Sometimes there may be actual cooking involved…and sometimes just fun!
by Dr. Suess

Summary: Find out how teeth help us and how to take care of them. Fun rhyming text shows many different kinds of teeth, from zebras to people!



You’ll Need:

  • a plate
  • apples
  • slivered almonds
To Make:
  1. Slice an apple into four even pieces and then remove the core.
  2. Remove a wedge from the apple, so that it will look like an open mouth.
  3. Count out 20 slivered almonds with your little one and put 10 on the top and 10 on the bottom. Note: If you have longer almond slices, you might want to try putting your ‘teeth’ in from the underside of the apple. Then you can push them through so the ‘breakthrough’ the gums! :)
Hope you enjoy this cooking activity with your little one! To see more featured books and activities, click here!
