Book Review: Brush Barry Brush

 Brush Barry Brush

Author: Linda Valederrama R. D. H.

Illustrations: Sudi Memarzadeh

ISBN: 978-0-578-06605-9


Brush Barry Brush is a charming picture book for very young children which introduces the activity of daily living: brushing your teeth. The illustrations and the simple text make the concept easily understood. The text introduces foods that are healthy followed by different children brushing their teeth, that is until Barry. Barry eats blueberries and doesn't brush. Guess what? Barry's teeth look blue.

Barry then brushes and has a sensational smile with white clean teeth. Children will want to read the story over and over. This fun book also has a chart for keeping children on track. Fun stickers are included that can be used to mark when the child brushes after every meal. What a fun way to help young children learn to grasp and develop the healthy habit of brushing teeth.

This is a great concept picture book with a fun story and a lesson cleverly woven throughout.


  1. What a great review. This is the kind of book that parents need just like the potty training books.

  2. I agree Virginia, cute illustrations,simple text, and BIG message. Great book for preschool children.

  3. Terri, I enjoyed reading all of the very interesting and informative articles that you have posted. Thank you for hosting me today and above all thanks so much for taking the time to review "Brush Barry Brush." Even though the main concept of my book is to brush teeth after eating whenever possible, the story and illustrations are also meant to lead to other questions about nutrition, colors and word sounds. The early years are so important in a child's life. Each time the story is read, my hope is that the reader will discover something on each page that will spark a discussion.
