A Book Review
The Tooth Mouse
That is correct, the Tooth Mouse. Not just any tooth mouse, but a mouse that provides innovative ideas on how to recycle teeth and models great character sets. Ms. Hood did a terrific job in taking a classic and adding a spin to it! Maybe this is how children see the tooth fairy in another culture, I don’t know. In any case, I thought it was an enjoyable read and would recommend it to anyone who wants to discuss where teeth go once they are lost from a child. Ms. Hood did a terrific job in providing just enough details so that the child and adult would finish this book in one setting. I could visualize this book being read to a child as they are putting their tooth under a pillow.
As stated in the above paragraph the story flowed from one section to another and provided a good secondary theme of work ethics that could be discussed with a child or used by an educator in a character development lesson. The story did not talk down to a child, but it did not use language and vocabulary that a child could not understand. The format of the book, text and illustrations, were put together in a wonderful sequential manner. Great book!!
I have not been financially compensated for this book review.
