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?

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, at school. 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, that is, 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 relatable and sweet friendship between a girl and boy who share a love of sharks.
