Tooth on the Loose

Illustrated by: Jennifer Mattheson
Age Level: 3-6

"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." — School Library Journal
