Move over princesses and dinosaurs—Tooth Fairy books are the new stars in town. Why? Parents have a lot to learn when it comes to teaching kids about that “magical being” that takes teeth and exchanges them for presents. The concept may seem complicated, but these Tooth Fairy books can do the explaining while enchanting your little ones.
Here are 5 of the best books about the Tooth Fairy to help you out:
1. The Night Before the Tooth Fairy, Natasha Wing
This illustrated journey through the anxiety that comes with a little one’s first loose tooth is a Tooth Fairy book worth picking up. Based on a poem from Clement C. Moore, this picture book is fun to read to or with young children excited to learn more about what happens to lose teeth.
2. What Does The Tooth Fairy Do With Our Teeth, Denise Barry
For kids who still have all their baby teeth intact, the title of this Tooth Fairy book is a serious question. They’ve never met the Tooth Fairy, so they’re unfamiliar with her abilities. The story provides a lovely, watercolor glimpse inside the world of the mysterious—and sometimes mischievous—sprite.
3. The Tooth Fairy (Peppa Pig), Scholastic
Peppa Pig is at it again in this Scholastic book about losing her first tooth. Despite frequently playing dentist with her brother George, Peppa Pig is unsure of what to do when her first tooth falls out. Children get to follow along as Peppa Pig goes on a journey they soon will too.
4. How to Catch the Tooth Fairy, Adam Wallace
What time does the Tooth Fairy start work? How does she get to your house? These questions and more are answered in this cute look at what makes the Tooth Fairy so hard to capture.
5. Toothville, Swampline Comics
