Don't Tease Me About My Teeth! is a series of rhyming stories for children that aim to bring inspiration and empowerment to youngsters who face judgment from others. Not all children's teeth grow the same. Some go through phases where their baby teeth and adult teeth grow in ways that can leave their smile looking a little different from the smiles of others. During this time, their appearance can lead to them being bullied and teased by other children who have not been raised to respect the various stages of growth. This series helps children experiencing such teasing to know how to deal with these issues, how to respond, and helps them to understand that it's only a phase. Cleverly constructed, each story introduces an animal character who has oddly shaped, arranged or colored teeth. These characters share their friendships with the bullied heroes, and lead them to realize there's nothing to fear.Sam Swims with the Sharks is the first book in this series. Little Samantha is tired of being told she has shark teeth. But, after befriending a shark on the beach who shows her how sharks are also often bullied, she stops feeling so alone. Sally the shark uses her own oddly-arranged teeth to explain to Samantha the stage she's going through. She reassures Samantha and shares knowledge that she can use to combat those who tease her. With fun and colorful illustrations, this warm and educational rhyming tale can be read by parents or teachers to children, or by children learning to read.
