&ldquo;Crunch crunch crunch. Teeth are strong and sharp. Crunch crunch crunch. Teeth can help you chew. But teeth are not for biti...ng. Ouch! Biting hurts. Sooner or later, almost all young children will bite someone&mdash;a friend, a parent, a sibling. This upbeat, colorful, virtually indestructible book helps prevent biting and teaches positive alternatives. The companion to our best-selling Hands Are Not for Hitting Board Book, Teeth Are Not for Biting gives reasons why children might want to bite. Little mouths feel sore when new teeth come in; sometimes kids bite when they&rsquo;re hungry, tired, cranky, frustrated, angry, bored, distressed, or seeking attention. Author Elizabeth Verdick suggests positive things children can do instead of biting: chew a chewy toy, drink a cold drink, get a hug, tell a grown-up.

When Trevor Romain&rsquo;s father died, Trevor didn&rsquo;t know what to feel, say, or do. Shocked, saddened, and confused, all he... could say was . . . wow. As he started understanding what had happened, he began writing about his experiences and feelings. His new book&mdash;simple, insightful, and straight from the heart&mdash;is for any child who has lost a loved one or other special person. Trevor talks directly to kids about what death means and how to cope. He asks the kinds of questions kids have about death&mdash;Why? How? What next? Is it my fault? What&rsquo;s a funeral?&mdash;in basic, straightforward terms. He describes and discusses the overwhelming emotions involved in grieving&mdash;sadness, fear, anger, guilt&mdash;and offers practical strategies for dealing with them. He also suggests meaningful ways to remember and honor the person who has died. When someone dies, adults are often involved with their own loss and grief and not as available to children as they might otherwise be. This little book, full of concrete advice and expressive illustrations, offers the comfort and reassurance that children need during these difficult times. Written to and for kids, it&rsquo;s also recommended for parents and other relatives, educators, counselors, and youth workers.
