TOOTH TALES FROM AROUND THE WORLD

Author: Marlene Targ Brill; Illustrator: Katya Krenina

What do children do when they lose a tooth? Do they try to exchange it with a beaver for one of his? Do they save it for the Tooth Mouse, or is that the Tooth Fairy?

For thousands of years children around the world have followed special customs for disposing of lost baby teeth. Whether they hide teeth under a rock, toss them in a fire, or place them under a pillow, they look forward to this important rite of childhood.

This magically illustrated book shows how children from various cultures and 17 different countries celebrate this rite of passage. From the tooth mouse to the tooth fairy, Tooth Tales introduces practices old and new from a variety of cultures.
