AJ’s Review:

I had a loose tooth, but then it fell out. I swallowed it while I was eating lunch at school. Now the tooth fairy is getting a “poop tooth”. Don’t worry, Mommy says she has magic to clean it off and I still get money. The’s boys tooth came out all by itself, just like mine.  

first tooth

Don’t mind the face paint and stamps…it was a kindergarten celebration to get ready for first grade.

Mommy’s Review:

An easy to read book with word and sentence repetitions to reinforce decoding of text. The boy has a loose tooth and wants it out, but it won’t come out. His family tries to help, but then it comes out all on its own. Perfect for beginner readers and kids who are just loosing their baby teeth.

  1. Sounds like such a cute read and Emma hasn’t had any loose teeth just yet, but keeps asking when it will happen. So, totally going to check this out for her. Thanks for sharing 😉

  2. The book sounds cute! My little guy has lost only one tooth. He has a “super tooth” which is a fused tooth (two teeth that grew together), and he cannot wait to see what the tooth fairy will give him for that. 🙂

Would love to read your thoughts
