Tooth on the Loose

Overview

An original take on losing a tooth.

This little girl has tried everything to make her loose tooth come out before her dad's birthday (except letting her brother yank it) so she'll have money to buy him a gift. Nothing has worked and now it's the big day. She just can't go to his party empty handed!

And her dad couldn-t be happier.

Susan Middleton Elya's trademark mix of Spanish vocabulary and fun verse combined with vibrant paintings by Jenny Mattheson will inspire lots of homemade gifts (and patience with loose teeth).

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

PreS-K

A young girl laments that her wiggly tooth will not fall out soon enough to enable her to collect tooth fairy money to buy a birthday gift for Papá. The rhyming story includes a mix of Spanish words within the English-language context-"I needed that tooth out/today, not mañana ./But yanking? Too painful./I tried a manzana ." The cheerful illustrations rendered in oil using a palette with shades of orange and rust show a delightful extended family willing to help the child with her problem. Traditional foods such as avocados, tamales, and tortillas decorate the birthday table as the congenial family gathers to celebrate. Young children will be able to relate to the simple, yet realistic, conclusion to the tale. A basic glossary, with pronunciation guide, precedes the text. This will be a welcome addition for both bilingual children and those who are looking to expand and reinforce their basic Spanish vocabulary.-Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA

Kirkus Reviews
Waiting for her very wiggly tooth to come out so she may use the tooth-fairy money to purchase a birthday present for Papa, a little Latino girl is encouraged by her family to facilitate its extraction with bites of an apple or corn cob and string tied to a doorknob-to no avail. With no dinero, a homemade poetry card will have to do, even as the tooth pops out just in time for the celebration. This youngster receives the best reward for her bright gap-toothed smile-the love and appreciation of her Papa. Elya's clever, singsong rhyme smoothly blends in Spanish vocabulary, signaled in bold within the text. "Oh, when will I lose it? / I'm hoping-espero- / that it'll be soon, / since I need dinero!" Mattheson's accompanying clean-lined oil illustrations, with their round shapes and bold primary colors, bring a Latin flavor to the scene, although it's regrettable that there is no visual evidence of the loose tooth. A glossary ensures further comprehension, even though the bilingual poemas will provide no problemas. (Picture book. 4-6)
