Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
It sure is frustrating to be the last one in your class to become a member of the Missing Tooth Club. When Trevor finally discovers that one is loose, he is excited and scared. Kids give him warnings about offers of help from siblings and parents to expedite removal of the loose tooth. Trevor isn't sure that he wants any help and Mom is always reassuring, "Just wait. That tooth will come out when it's ready." Well, it does finally come out in a most amusing way. Lots of humor to help kids impatiently waiting for that first tooth to start wiggling.
School Library Journal - School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1--Almost everyone in Mr. Thompson's diversely populated first-grade classroom wears a wide smile displaying missing teeth. Trevor, though, has all of his, although one is loose. As classmates tell how various family members attempted to remove their teeth with mention of string and pliers, the boy becomes anxious. However, Grandma Sally assures him that the tooth will come out when it's ready. That Friday, she goes to Trevor's class to teach the students how to make taffy and when everyone samples it, the inevitable happens. The story adequately addresses some of the anxieties children may have over losing their first tooth. However, the saccharine, cartoon pictures of Trevor's classmates and family do nothing to enhance the text. Strictly additional.--Farida Shapiro, New York Public Library

I love that book! It reminds me of the first tooth that I lost. I like how it has the repeating line from the mother. I like the art in it. I would tell my cousin to buy it, and maybe even buy it for her!
