The Museum Of Lost Teeth
By Elyssa Friedland
Illustrated by Gladys Jose

Find out where the tooth fairy takes all those lost teeth in this laugh-out-loud new picture book, perfect for fans of School’s First Day of School.
Toothy lives in Liam’s mouth next to his best friend Fang. He’s a good tooth—sparkly and strong, and he loves doing the floss.
One day, Toothy notices that he is loose and panics! Where will he go after he leaves his comfy spot next to Fang? After a crunchy apple seals the deal, Toothy is tucked under Liam’s pillow. When the Tooth Fairy appears, she takes Toothy to the Museum of Lost Teeth. It’s a more incredible place than Toothy could have ever imagined. It’s filled with new friends and fun activities like Tooth or Dare! Toothy finds a new home on the Firsts Floor, where first baby teeth are proudly displayed.
In the tradition of School’s First Day of School, The Museum of Lost Teeth answers the question “Where do all the lost teeth go?” in this unexpected and hilarious picture book.
What an incredibly cute story! Sometimes a child can be apprehensive about losing their first tooth, and just maybe that tooth is feeling the same way. This was the case with Toothy, Liam’s first baby tooth that was lost. I thought this was such a great way to incorporate taking good care of your teeth at a young age. The puns were witty and I found myself giggling along with my son. Tooth Fairy magic at it’s best! The illustrations are gorgeous and brought the story to life. Definitely one that all kids should read!
