    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 was a fun and informative book for kids who are losing their first teeth and I sent it off to my grandson. Kids and grown-ups can learn how different some cultures are and how similar others are in dealing with the loss of the baby teeth as a rite of passage. I was surprised at how many cultures include mice and rats in their "tooth tales"!
