Tooth Traditions from Around the World

 

author: Selby Beeler

illustrated by G. Brian Karas

 

What do you do when you lose a tooth? Do you put it under your pillow and wait for the tooth fairy? Not if you live in Botswana! In Botswana, children throw their teeth onto the roof. In Afghanistan they drop their teeth down mouse holes, and in Egypt they fling their teeth at the sun! Travel around the world and discover the surprising things children do when they lose a tooth. Selby B. Beeler spent years collecting traditions from every corner of the globe for this whimsical book, and illustrator G. Brian Karas adds to the fun, filling every page with humorous detail. He perfectly captures the excitement and pride that children experience when a tooth falls out.

This title has been selected as a Common Core Text Exemplar (Grades 2-3, Informational Texts)

 

Selby B. Beeler first became interested in lost-tooth traditions in other countries when a friend from Brazil asked, What's a Tooth Fairy?" Curious, Selby has been canvassing strangers ever since. This is her first book. G. Brian Karas has illustrated more than thirty books for children, including Truman's Aunt Farm, by Jama Kim Rattigan, and Mr. Carey's Garden, by Jane Cutler."
