A fun enough read, although I confess to being bugged by Oliver and Amanda checking the "road" for her tooth. Seriously, Lollipop and Amanda are allowed to ride their bikes on the road?! Maybe children that young do, but I sure have a problem with it.

That point didn't bug my child though. He asked me to read it three times in a row.

I really liked this book. It was a very cute story that describes a situation that children this age face - a loose tooth. It was very cute.

Amanda has fun with her wiggly tooth ALL DAY. She shows it to everyone! It keeps her preoccupied. But... does she want it to be pulled out? Not really! But it's always fun when the tooth fairy comes.

This cute story reminded me a lot of how it was when I lost my teeth as a kid. Even though it's a simple read, I think kids will enjoy reading about losing a tooth. I know I did!

This is a great story. I loved how, even though the book is divided into chapters the story stays about Amanda's loose tooth. Sometimes emergent books change stories for each chapter while keeping the same characters and theme.

Amanda having a loose tooth is something that every young child can relate to, as well as wondering what the tooth fairy does with the teeth. As a child I knew my parents were the tooth fairy, but I still loved trying to catch them taking my tooth, just like Amanda.

Great book and a pretty fun read. I've been in classrooms all day with children and they go through the same thing as Amanda, all they want to do is show you their tooth and talk about it. This book is definitely someting I can see children relating to and loving. It's a great Level 2 Easy Read.
