Teeth that gnaw, teeth that groom, teeth that bite into delicious food and grind it down--imagine what life would be without teeth! Though there are some animals, such as birds and turtles, that don't need any, most others depend on teeth for eating, protection, and more. Horses nibble each other's necks to get rid of loose hair and pesky insects. The monkey-like lemur uses its front teeth as a comb to remove tangles. Beavers depend on them to cut down trees for the dams and lodges they build-and to munch bark, twigs, buds, and leaves. Full-color photographs show animals around the world using their hard-working pearly whites to chew, crunch, and chomp, while black-and-white drawings add some extra fun!

From Booklist:

Reviewed with Diane Swanson's Feet That Suck and Feed.

Gr. 2-4. Volumes in the Up Close series focus on different parts of animals' bodies. Looking at one thing very closely can certainly be fascinating, and comparing the feet, for instance, of a wide range of animals and insects can lend insight into the similarities and differences among creatures. The close-up photographs are excellent. Often they catch animals in exciting motion; in the case of the volume on teeth, they can also be very scary. Smaller color drawings of animals add both information and visual interest. Probably no library needs this series, but young animal lovers will enjoy the books a lot. REVWR
