BLURB: 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 behaviour in babies and small children.
Biting babies constitute a REAL problem for families, childcare, kindergarten and even preschool!  This book, by way of a humorous story, educates the 'biter' about the  pain their behaviour causes and the 'bitten' as to strategies to cope! The book also provides a platform to discuss such behaviours with children and affected families.

A Word Wings picture book collaboration by Monica & Andrea Pucci, Italy, illustrator/graphic design team with Australian authors, J.R.Poulter & her youngest daughter, childcare /kindergarten professional, E.A. Poulter.


Toofs by J.R. Poulter is ideal. While Baby Wolf is teething, everyone in the family is a victim. Baby Wolf will bite.  This beautifully illustrated children's book by Italian illustrators/book designers Monica Rondino and Andrea Pucci, and Australian authors J.R. Poulter and E.A. Poulter, helps to set the stage around the subject of biting.
This is a great book because biting is a big issue today for children in schools and in childcare. The background that the authors have in the childcare and kindergarten industry, [means] they are extremely well aware of the harm that biting does. From childcare provider and teacher to parent, this is a great way to teach about biting and how to stop the problem. By Vernita Naylor, business educator, writer, reviewer for Readers' Favorite

TEACHER/PARENT REVIEW:”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.
