"The demands of the Tooth Fairy are almost as strenuous as those of Santa, but she has some help, because, as Beeler tells it, the customs about teeth vary around the world. . . . A charming debut." Kirkus Reviews
"This book describes a variety of rituals for the numerous occasions on which a child loses baby teeth. About a half-dozen countries in a broad geographic region are covered on each two-page spread. For each nation, an appealing youngster dressed in native attire provides one- or two-sentence summaries of local tooth customs. . . . A world map helps with the geography and a couple of appended dental diagrams give youngsters a simple oral overview. . . . A fun comparative study for the tooth-losing crowd." School Library Journal

Used the book to teach about different customs. Many countries have similar customs, so I allowed the students to choose countries where their families were from. Not a book you would read straight through. Students enjoyed the different cultures and some were going to check with their parents/grandparents to see if the books stories were true. great spark for independent research.Was this review helpful?
