Rosie, Max, Liam, and Zoe are painting pictures, playing games, and having lunch, but Clarabella the crocodile can’t join them. She’s busy brushing her teeth—and it takes a long time because crocodiles have so many teeth! After she misses a whole day’s worth of activities, her friends surprise her with a giant crocodile-size toothbrush. Tomorrow Clarabella will be able to brush her teeth and have fun, too. Very young children will enjoy meeting the engaging animal friends who brush their teeth so cheerfully. Bright, bold, funny illustrations accompany this simple and spirited story, which highlights an important dental routine.

PreSchool-An amusing story about the importance of carefully brushing your teeth and the satisfaction gained by helping a friend. When Clarabella, a crocodile, and her friends wake up, they start the day by brushing their teeth. The monkey, the zebra, the rabbit, and the leopard get the job done quickly while Clarabella "brushes and brushes and brushes" all of her teeth. Her friends play, have lunch, build sand castles, nibble ripe mangoes, and leap and spin around. As they move through their day, the question, "And Clarabella?" tempts readers to turn each page. By the time she is ready to join the fun, the other creatures are getting ready for bed. Poor Clarabella sighs, but then her friends surprise her with a large toothbrush. Delighted with her gift, the young crocodile turns her sigh into a big smile. The animals are playfully illustrated; the zebra sports pink and purple stripes, the monkey is done in green and purple, the rabbit is bright red with a green outline, and the leopard has green spots. This quirky and bright artwork, executed in pastels, is eye-catching and funny.
