Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

PreS. "My tooth is loose!" The series is My First I Can Read Book, and the story is straight from every preschooler's experience, told in simple repeated words and clear, energetic, colored pictures outlined with thick black lines. Close-ups show the anxiety and the physical facts every kid knows: "I can see it. I can feel it. I can pull it. I can push it." The little boy wiggles his tooth for Sister and for his dog, "But it won't come out." Everyone has a suggestion: Brother recommends pulling it; Sister advises him to wait. But it comes out on its own--now there's a hole where the tooth used to be! The elemental story will show new readers that books are about them. Hazel Rochman

My 5-year-old grandson has his first loose tooth. He is also reading small words and on the cusp of starting to read a lot. This book has great but simple pictures that are very appealing, few words per page (2 to 6 mostly) with words and phrases repeating, and goes through the steps of losing a tooth. My grandson read almost all of it the first day. At $3.99, it is a great value.

Both of my children have had a lot of fun with this book, and solo reading is often timed with the those first loose teeth.

LOOSE TOOTH is a fun little book for children who are reading at the Kindergarten level.

The story is about a boy who wakes up one morning to find that his tooth is loose. He's excited the same way that my children were when they were little. Bouncing around with energy. He says:

I can see it.
I can feel it.
I can pull it.
I can push it.

But it won't come out!

(text from 3 pages)

The boy gleefully shows everyone, and then he tries to eat carrots and other hard foods hoping it will come out. His brother (who's a scoundrel) even offers to pull it out --with huge pliers!

The artwork in LOOSE TOOTH is very appealing, as is the text. I don't know about your children but mine were fascinated with the whole tooth replacement phenomena. And Schaefer's book is a fun one to share.

I discovered this author, Lola M. Schaefer on the web while browsing for children's books. I bought "Loose Tooth" for my grandson who lives in the United Kingdom. He is a todder & hasn't begun to loose teeth yet but I thought this book would be nice to have on hand when that stage of his life comes. The book is simple, well illustrated, colorful & large print. The story explains what to possibly expect when you get a loose tooth. I recommend this book for other children, especially those that are in the "loose tooth" stage.

Waking up to the discovery of a loose tooth! This might happen at your house someday – be prepared. This little boy can see it wiggle, and he can feel it wiggle. But even when he pushes and pulls it doesn’t come out.

Now it’s time for some serious action- he bites an apple, bites a carrot and chews some nuts, but still – it doesn’t come out. What will be the outcome?

Our Granddaughter came for a sleepover last week and "found" this Loose Tooth book on her pillow. She was DELIGHTED she sat up and said "Nana you bought this book just for me!!!!!!" Her first front tooth is LOOSE and the story is light and nor frightening she knows this tooth has to come out and it put a laughable spin on reality. GREAT BOOK.
