Summary: This story is about sisters named April and Esme who are learning how to be tooth fairies from their parents John and Fay. At first the girls have to convince their parents that they are old enough to go out and get a tooth on their own. Their parents are unsure because things have become more dangerous since they were kids. At last the girl's parents agree to let them go get the tooth and their mother gives them a bag with a coin in it. They fly to the home of a little boy named Daniel and make their way upstairs to his room. They discover that his tooth is in a cup of water so April dives in to get it. They accidentally wake Daniel up so they pull his eyelids closed and whisper in his ear that he only dreamed about them. They return home and their parents are quite proud of their efforts. Daniel wakes up the next morning and is excited to have a coin in place of his new tooth.

Review: I think that young children would really enjoy reading this book especially if they have lost their first tooth. Many children would be able to relate to the story and would enjoy talking about their own tooth fairy experiences. It is an easy read and the author wrote in a way that appeals to many young readers. The language and sentence structure are simple enough for an emerging reader. The pictures also add a lot to the story because there is not a lot of text. If a student was unable to read most of the text they could still get a good idea of what happened in the story just by looking at the pictures. ( )

A sweet story about two very young tooth fairies on their first tooth collecting mission. Predictable. That being said, I'm sure my 7 year old would love it, and I will probably read it to her since she has just starting losing teeth this past year. ( )

We loved this book so much! It's cute, is full of love, and has a lesson about being responsible in various ways. I almost cried, as usual. This book is a keeper! ( )

This is a modern day tale of a fairy tooth family. The two daughters are named April and Esme, six and seven years old respectively. They have been called to their first tooth/coin exchange. After some argument with their parents about their readiness for such an endeavor, they fly off to do their work. They have a close call when their target, a boy named Daniel, wakes up and sees them. But a quick cell phone call to mom and they are able to get some advice about how to have Daniel forget he even saw them. When they get home from their mission, mom and dad are very proud of their daughters.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0763646830, Hardcover)

Two young tooth fairies make their first lost-tooth collection in Bob Graham’s warm, whimsical tale.

A Junior Library Guild Selection. April Underhill, seven-year-old tooth fairy, gets a call on her cell phone. This is it! Her first tooth collection. April and her little sister, Esme, must convince Mom and Dad to let them take on the task all by themselves. But soon, two tiny fairies fly off into the night, over a highway of thundering eighteen-wheelers, eager to prove how grown up they can be. As always, the charm is in the visual details: the pony-tailed, winged dad in baggy jeans; the snug fairy house with teeth dangling from the rafters like wind chimes. Once again, Bob Graham has crafted a tale of heartwarming adventure, magical yet very real.
