National Tooth Fairy Day is Tomorrow!

Tomorrow, Saturday is Naitonal Tooth Fairy Day and because I've heard of so many cute books about teeth and tooth fairies, I just had to go with this one! I've got a couple reviews as well as some cute toys about the tooth fairy to share today!

Charlie and Lola are back with another humorous adventure for their fans! Lola's got a loose tooth and she does not want it to fall out! However, big brother and mentor, Charlie, does his best at convincing Lola that her tooth is going to fall out whether or not she wants it to and tries to help her become excited about it by reassuring her that it's supposed to fall out and that it will make room for her grown-up teeth. It doesn't help much and Lola's not convinced at all... until her friend Lotta explains about the tooth fairy! Just as any child gets excited about the prospect of the tooth fairy visiting, Lola sets to work trying get that tooth out as quickly as possible so she can add a giraffe to her and Lotta's farm collection!

Faulkner, Keith.

Ages: 4-7

Guided Reading Level: N/A


The tooth fairy has found a tooth and in doing her job, desperately wants to deliver a surprise to its rightful owner... however, she's not quite sure who that might be! Each page takes the reader on the Tooth Fairy's journey to deliver the surprise, as she tries to match it up to other teeth in the animals' mouths. Cut outs on each page show the tooth fairy attempting to determine if the tooth came from that animal and also explains how the teeth are used by each animal as they are presented. Finally, on the last page, a pull tab shows the tooth fairy as she matches the tooth to a sleeping little boy and is finally able to leave her surprise. The funny illustrations and use of animals, as well as the cut-outs and finally the pull tab at the end will have children begging to hear this story each time they lose a tooth!
