Summary

There’s no way the Tooth Fairy is real. It just doesn’t make sense,” states Ellie. So, she sets out to prove this to be the case, armed with a tiny tooth and a thirst for the truth. Convinced that the grownups are the ones replacing the teeth with money, she hides her tooth and tells nobodyexcerpt her best friend and her eavesdropping mommy. Later that night, Ellie is awoken with a start. There stands a fairy and Ellie can’t believe her eyes. They fly to fairy land, across toothpaste rivers and through hallways of framed teeth, even stopping by a Peppermint Tree and toothbrushes made of solid gold. When Ellie awakes, there is indeed a coin in her tooth’s place, and a surprise at the door, but had it all been a dream? Or something more?

Featuring a whimsical story and simple, colorful illustrations by author/illustrator Jules Miller, Ellie and the Truth About the Tooth Fairy encourages children to believe while also promoting good oral hygiene. Readers ages 3 to 6 are starting to learn about losing teeth and also wondering about the tooth fairy. This is a great read-aloud for parents and their children in order to discuss losing teeth as well as promoting good brushing habits. The story keeps the magic of the tooth fairy alive while giving important information about oral hygiene. Ellie is a smart, savvy girl that kids will relate to, especially as she tries to figure out what is real and what is imaginary.
