Teeth, fangs, and tusks
Up Close: Teeth that Stab and Grind
by Diane Swanson
As the table of contents states, teeth are used to chomp, grind, talk, grab, and stab. In nice, clear text, Swanson describes how various animals use their teeth, which may prompt kids to examine their own teeth more closely. Impressive photos keep things interesting. Rough sketches are also included, but these are too small to be of much use reference-wise. Still, kids are bound to find this book exciting.
