9th August is National Book Lovers' Day - A day to encourage the joy and fun of reading. 

We have some books in our waiting area that encourage children to read about the importance of looking after their teeth and smiles.

To celebrate National Book Lovers' Day we thought we would share some of our favourites with you.

I am Not Sleepy and I Will Not go to Bed
Lauren Child
Charlie has this little sister Lola. Sometimes he has to try and get her to go to bed. Lola says, "I am NOT sleepy at 6 or 7 or 8. I am still wide awake at 9 and not at all tired at 10, 11 and 12 and I will probably still be perky at even 13 o'clock in the morning". 

A charming bed time story about a bed time routine, including brushing teeth.
