On the back of the box Magsamen recalls what it was like when she was a kid and had a loose tooth--it brought back memories a,nd we must be in the same age bracket because the going rate for a tooth was indeed a quarter from the Tooth Fairy. The book is chock full of facts about our teeth and it quickly sets kids' minds to rest when they learn that loosing a tooth is something that is natural and happens as we grow up. At the age of three most kids have twenty teeth; however, as you mature the number of teeth in your mouth increases until you have thirty-two. There is a chart that identifies the teeth and the age at which they would normally appear in your mouth. Teeth are very special and complex. They also need to be properly cared for if you want them to last your lifetime. The next section of the book focuses on the origin of the Tooth Fairy, some jokes, and tales about the Tooth Fairy. The book ends with a description of an activity using the materials that come with the book and a list of other books both fiction and nonfiction about teeth and the Tooth Fairy. The book slips out of the front cover of the box and the box can be used to store baby teeth, a toothbrush, or whatever strikes the child who gets it as a gift. There are even Tooth Fairy note cards, and tooth charts, as well as the satin pillow to tuck under your pillow when you lose a tooth. Don't forget to write a note to the Tooth Fairy!

I purchased this book when my daughter had her first loose tooth. She loved the pillow and it is small enough to place under your own pillow and not really notice it. It has a cute little pocket to hold her tooth and make it easy for the tooth fairy to find in the middle of the night. The book covers customs of several different countries which didn't seem to hold my little girls attention for long. A lot of the countries have a magical mouse instead of a fairy. My little girl liked the pictures that kids drew of what they thought the tooth fairy looked like and the story of the tooth fairy and how they live in your house and only kids can hear their tiny voices and feel the air moving when they fly by. She was very excited to lose her tooth and help our "house fairy" become a magical "tooth fairy" when he collected his first tooth ever. It also has actual statements that other young kids have sent in about losing their teeth explaining if it hurt, if it bled and how it wasn't so bad or scary. I like the chart that shows what order the teeth will be lost in and the folder and page to record the events.
We love this book and tooth fairy pillow! My grandson lost his tooth and we couldn't find it anywhere. We were so happy to read together all of the ways you can deal with this unforseen problem. The book is a keepsake. My family is looking forward to many more FamilyStories books. My grandson wants to go to the FamilyStories website and send a story!
