I love the Pinkalicious series and I really did enjoy "Silverlicious". These books are always full of color and such sweet books with great meanings. Everything I babysit I always end up reading one of Victoria Kann's books.

Summary:

The children's book, "Silverlicious", is about a young girl, Pinkalicious, who bites into her brothers cookie and looses her tooth. But she didn't loose just any tooth, she lost her "sweet tooth"! She writes a letter to the tooth fairy explaining that she lost her sweet tooth and that while her other one grows back in if she could leave her something sweet to eat. But when Pinkalicious wakes up she finds that the tooth fairy does come but Carols Cupid did! She tried his red candy hearts but did not like them at all. She writes a note back to Carols Cupid and saying that they were disgusting and would prefer something sweet. She does this multiple times but gets Edgar Easter Bunny with his Jelly beans, and Elf #351 with candy canes. At the end, Pinkalicious does get a letter from the Toothfairy but she explains to her that sweetness comes from the heart and that when you are sweet, the world and all the delicious things in it will be sweet too.n ( )

This is another book in the "pinkalicious" series. I found the illustrations to be very good, and loved how it incorporated all the "mythical" creatures from various holidays. It is a cute book to read when a child loses her first tooth! ( )

I had a wiggly tooth and I wanted to get rid of it, so I bit into a cookie. That cookie didn't taste very good! Ugh oh the little girl thought, I lost my sweet tooth. That night the little girl put her tooth under her pillow expecting the tooth fairy to come but cupid came instead. She wasn't happy that cupid came so she put her tooth under her bed expecting the tooth fairy to come again, but this time there were candy eggs scattered around her room. Many nights after that she would awaken to many different things in her room, but one morning she found three silver coins under her pillow. She was wondering what they were, but her brother had already noticed that the coins were made out of chocolate. She was starting to get mad at her brother, but her brother was being very nice and gave her the chocolate coins back so she could have them. She had wanted to be as nice to her brother as he was to her. She wanted to be as sweet as her sweet tooth.
This book was a great book because one tooth had so much meaning to it and can make children understand the meaning of being sweet and having a sweet tooth. I would recommend this book to

Silverlicious is a story about a little girl named Pinkalicious who loses what she believes is her sweet tooth. Her sweet tooth is lost after taking a bite of a cookie she stole from her younger brother. That night she anxiously awaits the tooth fairy’s arrival with what Pinkalicious hopes is a special sweet treat for her to enjoy even without a sweet tooth. This story is very relatable to children, as they all must go through the process of losing a tooth. In addition, sharing is a learned behavior; children begin with solely self-awareness until gradually compassion and empathy set in. The stealing of toys and/or treats is very common amongst children. The story continuous as Pinkalicious is disappointed when her request is not granted and she is instead visited by Cupid, the Easter Bunny and one of Santa’s elves. All of whom took the time to festively decorate her bedroom and bring her a treat, that is in her opinion, not sweet enough. Her disappointment grows with each visit until she finally wakes to a note left by the tooth fairy along with three silver coins. The tooth fairy reminds Pinkalicious that the world is only sweet and delicious when you are sweet to the world. Pinkalicious’s ungratefulness paired with the meanness she showed her brother caused all of her treats thus far to have no taste. Pinkalicious takes this message to heart and apologizes to her brother along with Cupid, the Easter Bunny and Santa’s elf. This is a lesson children can use in all aspects of their lives. Gratitude can go a long way. While you may not get exactly what you asked for, you should be grateful for what you are given. The tooth fairy also shares with Pinkalicious that sweetness comes from the inside, just like the chocolate found inside the silver coins left under her pillow, chocolate coins she shares with her brother in the end.

Silverlicious by Victoria Kann is the fourth of the Pinkalicious picture books. There is also a series of level one readers for children ready to move on in their reading skills.

As the main character has gotten older, it's time for her to start losing her teeth. Unfortunately she loses her sweet tooth! With it gone, none of treats she's given taste like anything good. Feeling jilted, she also starts to lose her sweet personality.

The reason I don't count the level one readers in the same series is that they are far more grounded in reality than their picture book counterparts. Here, the Tooth Fairy is real and she works with other magical, holiday based creatures: Cupid and the Easter Bunny for example. They even fill in for her when she's too busy.

This magical element gives more room for elaborate and outlandish illustrations. In this book, we're shown the girl's room decorated for a variety of different holidays as she tries to get back her sweet tooth ( )
