This Book Bites! : Or, Why Your Mouth Is More Than Just a Hole in Your Head
DO YOU KNOW... why people kiss?
why your cavaties are your parents' fault?
why your voice sounds dorky on tape?
why some people eat dirt? To find the answers to these and other mouth mysteries, here is the one chatty, lip-smacking good book that fully explains that wonderful hole in your head: the mouth. Peppered with activities any kid can try anytime (because the mouth is a "toy" they've got full access to - no need for a book-and-thing!), This Book Bites contains a near-overload of mouth-related information. An introduction to some of the mouth's bacterial inhabitants, and explanation of why the caveman had fewer cavities than we do even though they had no toothbrushes, how lizards use organs in their mouth to smell, how hot peppers scorch your mouth, what ventriloquists do to talk without moving their lips -- it's all in here. This Book Bites is a themed discovery that informs kids about biology, history (why did Teddy Roosevelt keep his teeth clenched?), world cultures (how it's normal to ask a friend for some pickled plum gum in Japan), and linguisitcs (why some people develop speech disorder).
