What happens when you have a loose tooth, but it's the Tooth Fairy's first day on the job? How will she find you and where will she leave her gifts?

In this installation of Sue Fliess and Simona Sanfilippo's Magical Creatures and Crafts series, a group of children wonder what happens if the Tooth Fairy assigned to collect their most recent lost tooth is brand new to her job. How will she know where to find the tooth? What if she goes to the wrong room? To help the Tooth Fairy remember her training, the children devise a plan that will guarantee her success!

With the right supplies—colored paper, crayons or pens, scissors, stickers and glitter, and ribbon—young readers who have a wiggly tooth or have recently lost a baby tooth can also help train their Tooth Fairy by making a sign for their bedroom doors similar to the ones the children make in the book.

Fliess’s bouncy read-aloud rhyming text and Sanfilippo’s energetic, whimsical illustrations will bring joy to young readers as they watch the children create a scene that will direct the little Tooth Fairy to the tooth she seeks. Also included are guides for teachers and parents about the origin and history of the Tooth Fairy, as well as instructions for making the craft featured in the book.
