Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The flighty-looking Tooth Fairy is a foil to the Wisdom Tooth. She claims to know all about teeth, but the Wisdom Tooth claims to know more. In addition to imparting factual information, the duo go back and forth in a gentle repartee. Kids learn that by age three, they have all 20 baby teeth—also called, "milk teeth." They start to fall out somewhere around the age of 5 or 6, and will probably not be completely replaced until the age of twelve. As an adult, you will have 16 upper and lower teeth. The text also describes the functions of the three different types of teeth, and in cut-away illustrations show the tooth as it appears above and below the gum. The ending does offer a little humor, and also a spread of "Did You Know . . .?" trivia. This "Silly Millies" series book concludes with notes to parents with tips to encourage and promote reading skills. 2002, The Millbrook Press,

K-Gr 3-Funny Faces features an equal mixture of the familiar as well as the unfamiliar, such as the dodo and black-bellied bustard. The informative text is entertaining: "The ostrich looks like an eight-foot-tall bowling ball-with feathers." Large photographs of these birds against colorful pages of fuchsia, bright gold, green, and orange provide an up-close-and-personal view. In the second title, the Tooth Fairy and Wisdom Tooth offer facts about teeth, competing with one another about who knows more about the topic. In the end, the Tooth Fairy uses her magic wand to turn Wisdom Tooth into a toad. The entertaining text is illustrated with cartoon art and a colorful, detailed diagram of the outside and inside of a tooth. Both books are great fun for independent browsing, shared reading, and curriculum units.-Wanda Meyers-Hines, Ridgecrest Elementary School, Huntsville, AL Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
