We tend to think that our mouths are for eating, drinking, and talking, which they are, but they serve a lot of other purposes too.

   In this clever novelty board book every double page spread presents little readers with an animal and the animal has a die cut mouth that is full of teeth. The fun part is that children can make the teeth move by pulling a tab.

   We begin with a crocodile, who reminds us that mouths are for smiles, and the leopard on the next page demonstrates that mouths can also be used to growl. An orangutan reminds us that another sound that mouths make are laughs.

   Little children are going to enjoy making the teeth filled mouths in this book chomp, roar, and more.
