Losing a tooth is a BIG deal. Just ask any little kid in kindergarten or 1st grade - they'll be able to tell you who's lost a tooth recently. It's a rite of passage, a sign that they are growing up. All of a sudden, something solid that's been in their mouth as long as they can remember, suddenly becomes wiggly and then FALLS OUT! Rene Colato Lainez has written a wonderful story blending the traditions of the Tooth Fairy, who visits children throughout North America, and El Raton Perez, who visits children in Spain and throughout Latin America. It's full of humor and imagination, and is a perfect way to celebrate blending traditions of families from many backgrounds.
