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.
