Fancy Nancy and the Too-Loose Tooth by Jane O’Connor
Summary: Nancy absolutely must have her first tooth fall out at school. That way she will be sure to receive the special tooth-holder necklace from the school nurse. But when Nancy’s tooth starts wiggling at home, she is worried she might lose it before class. How can Nancy make sure her loose tooth falls out at school?
What I liked about the book: O’Connor does her usual fantastic job of creating an interesting story with great appeal for young readers. And of course Glasser’s illustrations are beautifully colorful and full of detail. Young readers will be able to identify with Nancy’s desire to have the coveted tooth necklace given to students who lose their tooth at school. Nancy’s efforts to make sure her tooth falls out at school will readers smile.
This is a good book to use during February which is National Dental Month.
What I didn’t like about the book: As with almost all Fancy Nancy books, I loved it all.
