Josie's Lost Tooth

By Jennifer K. Mann
Illustrated by Jennifer K. Mann

What if you’re first and best at everything — except losing your first tooth? A sweet, relatable story about comparing yourself to others, losing teeth, and the value of good friends.

Josie is the monkey-bars champion, the first one to read a whole book by herself, and the second-fastest runner in her class. But she’s the worst at losing teeth —the only kid in her class who still has all her baby teeth! One night, Josie finally feels a tooth wiggle, just a little, and she can’t wait to show her best friend, Richard. But nothing makes the tooth fall out — not hanging upside down, chomping on an apple, or even pulling on the tooth with a string — until Josie trips and goes splat and the tooth is lost for good. Now what can she leave under her pillow for the tooth fairy?

  • The perfect pick for a child who has lost a tooth – or really wants to lose a tooth!
  • Explores competition among peers (who is the best at something... or the last) in a gentle way.
  • Features a realistic and sweet friendship between a girl and boy who share a love of sharks
