North American children have become interested and engaged in their oral health with the help of the tooth fairy for decades. But children from other parts of the world enjoy many other myths and traditions when they lose a tooth.
Throw Your Tooth On The Roof: Tooth Traditions from Around the World by Selby B. Beeler is a fascinating, child-friendly take on these tooth loss traditions, with plenty of beautiful pictures and stories about your children's counterparts worldwide.
When North America children loose their teeth, most know exactly what to do: put it under your pillow for the tooth fairy!
But if you're a child living in Botswana, you throw your tooth on the roof! Or Afghanistan, children drop their baby teeth down mouse holes. And in Egypt, they throw their teeth into the sun!
With this book, your children can travel around the world right there on the living room sofa, and learn all about the strange but fun things far away children do when they lose a tooth.
