Summary from Goodreads:Wilbur Walrus won’t go to the dentist even though one of his tusks hurts.
Hones’ Review: Initially my children and I thought this book was about losing a tooth. But we were pleasantly surprised when we read about Wilbur Walrus and his sore tooth. Wilbur needs to see the dentist but is afraid. But he learns from his Grandpa the importance of seeing the dentist. This is a great book to encourage children to visit the dentist and to take care of their teeth.
I recommend this book for ages 3-8.
