This story is about how a little boy is told that the tooth fairy is not real and the story his father tells him to keep the magic alive and to keep him believing. ( )

Gaby Is getting older and he hears other kids talking about how the tooth fairy and other creatures such as superheros and Cinderella are not real. He goes to his dad to ask if it is so.
His dad then tells him of a time long ago when such creatures did exist.

I really like this book. I added it to my collection. The way it tells of a time long ago about magical creatures and fairies really drew me in.

In the classroom we draw our favorite creature from the book. We could also write a story in detail about where we imagine the fairies living. How they live, what it looks like and what they do.

Ever since young Gaby lost his first tooth, the same ritual has happened--he leaves his tooth in a special envelope under his pillow, and receives three things in return: a silver dollar, a bright shiny penny, and a letter from Gwyneth, his personal tooth fairy.

But when Gaby hears, as children do, that the tooth fairy is none other than his parents, he goes directly to his father for an honest answer. His dad goes on to tell him the story of fairies, and how they had to leave the Earth when people stopped believing in them. Their voice, he says, is what guides the gifts and letter that his father leaves.

I loved this book. Besides being beautifully illustrated, I truly enjoyed the story of magical beings and life that the author desribes. I only offer one word of caution. My children are at the age where one wholeheartedly believes in the tooth fairy, and the other still wants to believe. Unless you want a lot of questions--and probably some tears when the truth is discovered--you might do well to stress to your kids that this is a work of fiction. I, for one, still want my children to carry that hope of magic. ( )

Summary: This book is about a little boy who thinks that his dad is his tooth fairy. When he asks his dad if he is the tooth fairy is dad tells him a story. The story is about how long ago fairies were getting rideculed so they decided to leave and never come back. They said that if the people who believed in them listened really hard that they would be able to hear the fairies talking to them. The tooth fairy said that she would talk to the parents of the child who lost the tooth and tell them what to write in a letter that the mother or father would put under the child's pillow with 2 coins.
Personal Reaction: I think this book was very creative and I love the story line. I think that would be a great way to tell your children about the tooth fairy when they are growing up.
Classroom Extension: This book could be used during storytime or when teaching little children about their teeth.
