NOT for your child's first dentist trip
Reviewed in the United States on September 22, 2017
I purchased this to read to my daughter before her first dentist visit. It starts out with George hurting his tooth while eating an apple and just goes downhill from there. Lots of pages where George is scared as well as one of him running down the hall away from the dentist looking terrified. Of course it has a happy ending, but the fear aspect of it all is just too much. I decided not to show it to my daughter, but she found it and insisted I read it anyway. I made up a different story and tried to make it sound happy, but she wasn't buying it. She went to bed and woke up saying "I no go to dentist. It's scary!" So mom fail on my part for leaving the book out for her to see, but yikes. Unless your kiddo is already afraid and/or needs to have a procedure other than cleaning done, this is NOT the book for you.
