Welcome to The Dental Library Review! In this feature, we will be reviewing and highlighting different children’s books we have collected at our office. Our staff have personally used these books with their own children and have had great reception. Today, we will be going over What Does the Tooth Fairy Do With Our Teeth? by Denise Barry (illustrated by Andy Boerger).

This rhyming book chronicles the many things the tooth fairy could do with our teeth. From keeping them in display cases to turning them into long necklaces, many fantastic ideas are proposed. Every two pages has a new stanza on what exactly she could be up to. The book ends with an open invitation to imagine even more fun things for the tooth fairy to do with her prizes.

We love this story because the illustrations are absolutely beautiful. Kids and adults alike will be entertained by the artistic talent that went into it’s creation. Because of the fun pictures and simple vocabulary, this book is likely best suited for young readers or as a bedtime story. At 34 pages, it is a long enough to fill a car ride or a particularly restless evening. Overall, we really enjoy the fun rhyming, beautiful pictures and fun storyline!

As with all the stories we review, feel free to check it out at your next appointment. We are always happy to do anything we can to get your family excited and educated about dental health topics!
