What We're Reading Wednesday-Dental Health

One predictable part of first grade is that teeth are going to fall out! 

As you know, I've been teaching for some time...and year's ago, books about teeth were hard to come by. Not so anymore! There is a plethora (Ha! like that word) of Dental Health books out there! I'm listing the fiction books we are loving right now, but there are also loads of nonfiction books, as well!

This is the most overworked Tooth Fairy ever!

Don't you love all the books about this adorable bear?!

Stewart's sweet tooth is making his life unbearable!
See what happens in a small town when Grandpa's teeth are stolen! Funny story!
Expect lots of giggles with Robert Munsch!

Poor Lola faces loads of problems when her tooth becomes loose!

Truman's first tooth is loose in this precious celebration of childhood! 
Have you seen this precious book about Dr. Moose??
We should all be so lucky to have a dentist like him!

 Oldies but Goodies!

And....Junie B!


  1. We LOVE "You Think It's Easy Being the Tooth Fairy?" Such a sweet book! Last year, one of my teacher friends did a letter writing activity with it. Do your little one's teeth fall out ALL THE TIME?!?!? I send them to the nurse, but I'm thinking about getting some of those little tooth treasure chests to keep in my room so they don't leave like twice a day, ha! :)

    2. Hi, Haley! Yes!! We lose teeth all.the.time! I do love those toothless smiles, though! Around this time of year, I stock up on the little plastic hearts from Dollar Tree and Target Dollar Spot. They are bigger and seem easier for them to keep up with, or so it seems! I'm so glad you stopped by!!

Great for pairing up an informational text with some of the literary ones you have posted! :) It has tons of rhyming too, that firsties would love! :) We are going to do Dental Health with our kids in about two weeks, I think, so...I'll have to revisit this post to make sure I check out some really neat books for the kids! :) Thanks for sharing!
