Book review: "Arthur's Tooth" by Marc Brown

Even though it happens to everyone, losing a tooth for the first time can make kids nervous or apprehensive.

"Arthur's Tooth" offers a funny story that helps make the loss of baby teeth less scary. It shows kids that they are not alone in losing their teeth, while also telling a story that is silly enough to keep them engaged (I liked The Brain's odd-looking tooth extraction contraption.)

The book even manages to pass along a few educational bits, such as "Between the ages of four and seven, everyone begins to lose their deciduous, or baby, teeth."
