Letters from My Tooth Fairy

We rated this book:


The loss of Natalie’s first tooth, a bottom central incisor, begins a funny and poignant correspondence between her and her dutiful tooth fairy. The tooth fairy leaves a letter and money in exchange for each tooth, and often writes about her journey to reach Natalie. Sometimes Natalie writes her back.

As the years go by, readers gain an insight into the major changes Natalie experiences in her life, such as the arrival of her new baby sister (tooth #7) and the family’s move to a new house (tooth #10). Natalie loses teeth in a variety of settings. She loses tooth #17 at Camp Timberwood, which has its own tooth fairy. Through it all, Natalie’s tooth fairy never lets her down, even when she needs to find a last-minute replacement.

Letters from My Tooth Fairy by Brooke Hecker is a clever take on the magical and loving relationship between a tooth fairy and her child. Natalie faces her life’s milestones with pluck and silliness, and the tooth fairy is utterly devoted to her. Deborah Melmon’s illustrations are rich with color and reflect the life of a child perfectly.
