What Does the Tooth Fairy Do With Our Teeth? {Children’s Book Review}

{Disclaimer: I received this book for free in order to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own and may differ from your own.}

Matthew very excitedly read What Does the Tooth Fairy Do With Our Teeth? with me this week. This book came to us in a very exciting moment in his life, because he’s been losing teeth left and right lately! He’s lost three in the last few weeks. For any six-year-old, this is a momentous milestone in their tiny lives! One question he did ask before we received this book or even knew it existed was what the tooth fairy did with his teeth.

In the book, What Does the Tooth Fairy Do With Our Teeth? children are offered different illustrated scenarios. Does she take them to the moon? Does she put them on display? My son was convinced that she keeps them in a jar, while my preschoolers loved the thought of the tooth fairy going to the moon and turning their teeth into stars.

I’m so happy that there is a book that promotes thought-provoking creativity in young children. This is such a special time in children’s lives. I think that reading What Does the Tooth Fairy Do With Our Teeth? helped us celebrate that. I also love that I’ll be able to read this book with my younger children when this time comes in their lives. This book really holds a special place in my heart.

What Does the Tooth Fairy Do With Our Teeth? is written by Denise Barry and illustrated by Andy Boerger. Denise is a full time mom in Buffalo, NY who has a flair of writing. She helped co-write the best-selling book Watch Her Thrive: Stories of Hope, Courage, and Strength by Kimberly Riggins.

    The innocence of a young child.. the tooth fairy take our kids teeth, cleans them up and gives them to a child who needs them.

    I love books like this, books that answer questions that sometimes adults cant.

    Great book! It's always nice to have a story to go along with an "event", such as loosing a tooth. It makes the moment more memorable.

    What a cute book! We aren't to the age of loosing teeth yet, but it will be here before I know it I'm sure!

    Huh, I never thought to get a book about the tooth fairy. I've never been asked what the tooth fairy does with the teeth!

    I have observed that in US (western countries) tooth fairy is really popular, but in our place (Philippines) our parents will prefer to throw it on the roof so that it will grow soon. lol

    I'm going to need this book. My niece (she's like my second daughter) is getting closer to that age when their replace their teeth and it would be great to have an educational read like that to help her cope with the change.

    My son just lost his front tooth. The tooth fairy came and he sure does look cute. 🙂

    We're a few years away from my son losing his teeth, but I think he'd like this book anyway. He's really been into books lately (and fortunately!).

    This looks like such a cute book! I love that it doesn't tell you exactly what she does with them but rather offers up scenarios of what she might do with them, leaving the child to wonder about it. My daughter is 3 1/2, but when she loses her first tooth I am going to have to try to find this book for her.
