New Book Teaches Children Love, Acceptance and the Importance of Brushing Their Teeth

Enamel wishes he were like all the other camels who live in Camel-lot, but his front teeth are bigger than anyone else’s.   Enamel has an overbite, which he brushes to a bright, glowing shine. This marks Enamel as different from his fellow camels and he’s the only camel who brushes his teeth.  Because his teeth are so prominent, he gets teased at school. Despite kind words from Enamel’s friends, the bullying gets him down. After being teased one time too many during a student outing at the Big Palm Oasis, Enamel decides he’d rather be alone. But when an epic sandstorm blows in, Enamel saves the day. Using his teeth in a very “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer” fashion, Enamel leads his scared classmates home to their worried parents. The town thanks him with an award for heroism, and everyone starts brushing their teeth and smiling.

Enamel the Camel is an upbeat humorous story for children about sticking out, stepping up, and the importance of good dental care written by Dr. Mike King, a pediatric dentist in New York City since 1986.  

In his dental practice, Dr. Mike as he is called, uses jokes, magic tricks, and a calming nature to treat his young patients.  Enamel the Camel is his latest book to help children understand and appreciate their teeth.  He has pioneered the philosophy or “flossophy” as he likes to call it, that smiling and laughing should be part of a child’s dental experience.

Enamel wishes he were like all the other camels who live in Camel-lot, but his front teeth are bigger than anyone else’s.  And they stick out!  He’s the only camel who brushes his teeth – he has to because everyone can see them.

  1. Natural herbs have treated so many illnesses that drugs and injections can't treat. I've seen the great importance of natural herbs and the wonderful work they have done in people's lives. I read people's testimonies online on how they were treated of Herpes, HPV HIV/AIDS & STDs, Diabetics , Gonorrhea, Hepatitis, Stomach infections, Chronic pains. etc. by powerful natural herbal medicine, so I decided to contact the doctor because I know nature has the power to heal anything. I was diagnosed with Herpes for the past years but Dr Chike treated me with his natural herbs and I referred my aunt and her husband to him immediately because they were both suffering from herpes but to God be the glory, they were treated too believe it or not, but I am a living testimony. There is no harm trying powerful natural herbs. Contact Dr on Whats-App number . +233502715551. or you can also contact through his Facebook Page @ Dr Chike Herbal Remedy.
