Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-Schaefer and Wickstrom capture the excitement a child experiences when he realizes that his tooth is loose. With a few words, lots of repetition, some rhyme, and good rhythm, this story is perfect for beginning readers. The cartoon illustrations add details to the plot and create interest. Expressions of curiosity, joy, and fear (of the pliers Brother suggests as a remedy) clearly portray the feelings of the narrator. A fine choice for those just starting on the exciting road to reading.-Anne Knickerbocker, formerly at Cedar Brook Elementary School, Houston, TX Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Losing that first tiny tooth is a huge event in the life of a child, celebrated here in this beginning easy reader from the I Can Read series. A little boy with curly blond hair is the first-person narrator, describing the condition of his loose tooth and his attempts to dislodge the tooth through wiggling and eating. The rhyming text is simple but clever, told in very short sentences with repeating sentence patterns and a catchy refrain. Wickstrom's loose watercolors with thick outlines provide additional humor, with distinctly different looks for each member of the boy's family. While this entry works well as a beginning easy reader, it will also be popular in kindergarten and first-grade classrooms as a read-aloud and will fit right in to story hours with dental themes. (Easy reader. 5-7)
