The Illustrators of Toofs by J.R. (Jennifer) Poulter

BEWARE! Biting Baby! Just how do you cope?

Here is a story to give you some home.

A humorous tale with rhyming element, including tried and true strategies, from professional childcare practice, for dealing with biting behavior in babies and small children.

A bit about Toof’s idea…
The first time we read Jennifer’s poem story, we thought it was full of life and had a joyous sense of fun. The more we read it and the more we sketched little things and animals with teeth, the more this little creature came to life.

It became obvious our family was going to be a family with famously big teeth – a wolf family!

This was perfect, according to Jennifer, because the story dealt with the problem of biting babies.

Jennifer’s daughter, Estelle, is a professional with 10 years experience in kindergarten and child care and she co-wrote the story, weaving into it the tried and tested professional strategies for dealing with biting in little ones.

We have also developed with Jennifer, a companion book of  teacher notes, activity sheets and coloring-in pages.

“A gorgeous tale full of the trials and tribulations of one of baby's first milestones. This book is just as enjoyable for parents who can reminisce about this memorable time."
Adrienne T. O'Connell, teacher, B.A., Grad. Dip. Ed., taught children from outback indigenous classrooms to multicultural big city classrooms.
