We love reading and one of Erin’s favourite things to do is to visit the library to get something new to read. We’re always on the look out for books she might enjoy and we were recently sent Tooth Fairy In Training by
Tate’s big sister May is taking her out on her very first tooth-collecting mission, and it’s going to be a little … well, dangerous. It will involve trekking through the deep, dark jungle, plunging into the murky ocean, and facing the ice of the Arctic. Because it’s not just sweet, slumbering little children that lose their pearly whites, oh no… All kinds of toothy predators lose their gnashers, too! Can Tate collect missing teeth from crocs, sharks and anacondas … and all without waking up a single creature?
The first thing that stood out to me was how lovely it was to have a story about two sisters, with the older of the two helping out the younger sister. As someone who argued constantly with her own sister, I really liked seeing that these two had a lovely relationship and the story wasn’t about them bickering and fighting.
May is a tooth fairy and her little sister Tate is about to be trained to do the same. Being a tooth fairy isn’t as simply as it seems though as it’s not just human children that lose teeth. I honestly hadn’t thought about explaining something like that to a child though and this book does it in a really fun way.
Tooth Fairy In Training is full of adventure and excitement and May and Tate encounter all different kinds of children who have lost teeth. The one thing to remember though is not to wake anyone up! May and Tate are such a wonderful pair to read about and again, it’s great to see them having a nice relationship. The story shows that sisters can be nice to each other, help each other and most importantly, be friends.
To go with a really lovely, and fun story, the illustrations are really beautiful. We’re taken off to a magical world where anything can happy and the tooth fairies can fly all over the world to do their job. Each picture is so detailed down to individual stars in the sky and even teeth in jars that have been collected.
This is truly a lovely story and one we really enjoy reading. Erin is an only child but if you have more than one child then this could be something really special to share together.
Tooth Fairy In Training is available now and can be purchased on Amazon.
