Mina and the Big Bite

Mina and the Big Bite

a practical picture book to encourage toddlers to stop biting


Mina, like all little monsters, has LOTS of sharp teeth!

And sometimes, when she's really stressed, she uses them on her friends!

Join Mina, as she learns that biting can hurt and that there are LOTS of other ways to cope with difficult situations.

Packed with playful illustrations and reassuring text, this picture book is perfect for adults and children to enjoy together. It provides practical tips to help manage challenging situations, and with a focus on positive behaviours it will help all little monsters understand that teeth can hurt and aren't to be used for biting friends!
