    DO NOT READ THIS BOOK to young children unless you want all the magic extinguished from their life The author s story describes that all the magical creatures have left the earth never to return and that parents take the teeth and write notes that fairy voices whisper to them Our tooth fairy only leaves notes in extreme cases my middle child swallowed a tooth and was afraid that the tooth fairy wouldn t come but she did and left a note reassuring my child that the tooth fairy always knows whe DO NOT READ THIS BOOK to young children unless you want all the magic extinguished from their life The author s story describes that all the magical creatures have left the earth never to return and that parents take the teeth and write notes that fairy voices whisper to them Our tooth fairy only leaves notes in extreme cases my middle child swallowed a tooth and was afraid that the tooth fairy wouldn t come but she did and left a note reassuring my child that the tooth fairy always knows when a child looses a tooth even if there isn t one under the pillow My 8 year old brought this home from the school library and she read it to my 5 year old before I had a chance to review it I did not realize I needed to sensor books that my child brings home from an elementary school library I can only hope that they both forget about it My 5 year old hasn t even had the chance to experience the magic of the tooth fairy yet

    I ll trade you my tooth envelope for your Elf on the Shelf.No, no, no, no No No This is like Elf on the Shelf bad without the commercialization Actually, no, there is commercialization if you read the author s note at the end.So this little boy, Gabi, has a loose tooth Whenever he loses a tooth, he puts it in a special envelope from his parents under his pillow envelopes which you can buy from the website at the end of the book and the next morning he gets a letter from Gwyneth, who is I ll trade you my tooth envelope for your Elf on the Shelf.No, no, no, no No No This is like Elf on the Shelf bad without the commercialization Actually, no, there is commercialization if you read the author s note at the end.So this little boy, Gabi, has a loose tooth Whenever he loses a tooth, he puts it in a special envelope from his parents under his pillow envelopes which you can buy from the website at the end of the book and the next morning he gets a letter from Gwyneth, who is his personal tooth fairy and always says things like, You re a amazing person I love your teeth They re great And leaves him a silver dollar and a penny He even keeps the notes, so it s a meaningful ritual to him As he gets older, he overhears kids talking about how fairy tales aren t real, like Goldilocks and Rumpelstiltskin jeez, I hope my children don t end up thinking those are actual real stories and then the Easter Bunny isn t real and the Tooth Fairy isn t real, that it s moms and dads who tiptoe into your room, throw away your old teeth, and leave behind a gift So he gets upset and goes to his dad and says, I need you to tell me the truth Is there really a tooth fairy named Gwyneth who comes and takes my teeth, or is it you And then his dad sits him down and says, Okay, this is the most honest answer I can give you A long time ago, there were dinosaurs and mastodons and dodo birds and they re all gone Up until this point, the book is fine, and then it takes a sharp left turn into Malarkeyville and says, There were also unicorns, minotaurs, mermaids, dragons, wizards, trolls, and elves And there were fairies There were so many fairies There were fairies all over the place But because of technology, magic went away, and all the magical creatures went away and the last to go were the fairies who maybe went to uncharted islands, the stars, or the moon We don t know where they are, but they re not here So all the children were very sad because the fairies were leaving and they missed them and the gifts that they left so the last fairy to go says, You re never gonna see us again, but if you listen you might be able to hear our voices A quote from the book From this day forth, your parents must take the teeth from beneath your pillows Then they will sit in a quiet place with a pencil in their hands They ll close their eyes and soon they ll hear a voice inside their heads The voice will tell them what to write and what treasures to exchange And as long as their children believe in this magic, then so long will we fairies keep speaking And you shall have our words and our little gifts of love And then the question is raised, Is it really fairies or our parents imagination And then the fairy says, Nobody will know You just have to trust that it s really the fairy So the father tells the son, Okay, I m the one that takes the envelope, but I sit and I meditate and I hear the voice of a fairy talking to me and I write down what it says and whether or not the voice is actually the fairy or if it s my own imagination is up to you And then Gabi says, You know what, I don t know, but I m gonna believe that it s true And then the next day his loose tooth falls out and he gets a letter which says, I have given you many gifts But you have given yourself the greatest gift of all possibilities May magic fill your life Your world will never be ordinary, for you have chosen to live by your heart And then he s happy and his little brother loses his first loose tooth.At the end, there s a note from the author that says this is all true His son s name is Gabriel Gabi is the author s own son although the dad depicted in this book looks nothing like the author, actor Jason Alexander So that s what he told his son when his son asked It says down at the bottom, The tooth fairy envelope depicted in the book is a replica of the one my family actually uses They were created by my friend Greg Leonard You may order them at the following website So it is kind of selling something It s selling a tradition, a tradition of writing letters as if you were a tooth fairy The envelopes aren t made by him, exactly, they re his friend s, but still Okay, I get that your family has a weird story and tradition My family certainly didn t do this My family didn t leave notes from the Tooth Fairy under my pillow I didn t have to put anything in a special envelope My guess is my parents were probably too unsure about their ability to get in and out without waking me up, so they just had me leave my tooth in a glass of water in the kitchen, and then the next day the tooth was gone from the glass of water but, poof, there was a dime in there It was no full on letter and no meditation by the parents on this It s just ridiculous.This is not a good story for kids It s not good for kids to believe that a long time ago there was magic in the world That s not true We understand the world so much I mean, there s a lot that we don t know, but there s so much that we do, and that s one of the things that we do you can t break the laws of physics Fairies never actually did exist I m sorry, they didn t If they did, they would have left fossils And also, if they existed at the same time as people, then we would have like tons of literary historical evidence of this and it would be incredibly consistent This isn t like religious figure type stuff, this is superstition type stuff I mean yes, there are stories of leprechauns and gnomes and stuff, but modern people don t actually believe that once upon a time there were leprechauns but there aren t any No reasonable adult believes that, and trying to convince your child that it s true is a bad idea It only leaves him open to abuse by unscrupulous people who will take advantage of his naivete That s how that works.Message Fairies are real At least, they were real, but technology is evil so they re gone now.Forchildren s book reviews, see my website at

    The cool thing about this book and the author explains it at the end is that he is honest in answering the child s question, but he s not brutally honest In other words, he doesn t hinder the child s ability to hope for possibilities It s a great lesson for parents in how to handle difficult questions resulting from the juxtaposition of truth vs honestly answering a child s sincere questions.

    This came through the used bookstore where I work Seinfeld is my happy place so yada yada yada I had to take a look The illustrations are lovely, the story simple and pleasant A fun book from a fun author.

  5. Tony Pope says:

    Read this book because I had heard a parent at a school and expressed concern over it I read it and only concern I could possibly would see would be how the father dealt with the little boy in the story questioning the existence of the tooth fair and other childhood creatures of make believe.

  6. Hααlεч ♥ Fιѕнεя says:

    This book was not what I expected However, I was happily surprised The explanation that, Yes, Dad is the tooth fairy takes a different story than any I ve heard before.

  7. Anthony says:

    Based on an actual conversation between the author and his son leads to this tale of magical kingdoms and possibilities to come.

  8. Holliferous says:

    Unique and an argument that actually holds up and opens kids minds up to the modern fairy tales I love it and plan to do much the same for my son when he starts to lose teeth

    This children s book is about a little boy named Gaby who is curious about whether his dad is the tooth fairy or not When Gaby asks his dad for the truth about tooth fairy s his dad goes on to tell him that one day all the magical creatures of this world had to disappear, but the tooth fairy left behind one last thought for a child The tooth fairy tells the parents what to do with the tooth and tell them what to give each child for his her tooth, yet the parents will not know that they are b This children s book is about a little boy named Gaby who is curious about whether his dad is the tooth fairy or not When Gaby asks his dad for the truth about tooth fairy s his dad goes on to tell him that one day all the magical creatures of this world had to disappear, but the tooth fairy left behind one last thought for a child The tooth fairy tells the parents what to do with the tooth and tell them what to give each child for his her tooth, yet the parents will not know that they are being told this At the end, Gaby is happy to know that he still has a friend in a tooth fairy and chooses to believe in his The illustrations in this book were outstanding They were really detailed in the descriptions of each magical creature and made us feel as if we were actually in the story I personally wasn t a fan of this book because it could ruin some children s beliefs too soon I believe that every child should have the opportunity to believe in all the magical things that we, as adults, do not believe I can relate to this by seeing this first hand When I was in the classroom last semester, I had a first grader tell another first grader that Santa Claus wasn t real The first grader then in turn started crying I had to comfort the student and tell her that every believes in different things and if you believe in Santa Claus and you know that he is real then that s all that matters I had to take the other student aside, the one that told the other student that Santa wasn t real, and tell him that if you believe that then that is okay, but he should start telling other kids that for no reason just to make them cry It was my first encounter with that kind of situation and I thought I handled it pretty well I can make a classroom connection with this by reading this to the older grades, maybe fourth grade when they are slowly starting to understand what is going on I would first send a note home saying that I will be readying this book and tell the parents what the book is about I would go on saying that I want to teach a lesson on dental hygiene and the proper way to take care of your teeth I want to show them how to properly brush their teeth and the amount of time they would have to spend brushing them I would also have a dental hygienist come in and give a demonstration on a model of teeth I think this will give students the hands on experience that each one of them will need later down the road to keep a strong and healthy smile The Lexile for this book is AD740L and the Guided Reading is P I would expect students in the fourth grade to be able to understand and start reading this book I wouldn t show them this book until I know they are ready to handle what may await them in the story

    The story and illustrations in this book are very whimsical The story deals with a common coming of age theme wondering if Santa Claus The Easter Bunny etc are real in a sensitive manner which instead of blatantly telling kids It s fake or talking about a related religious or mythical story, tells them that the tooth fairy is as real as they wish to believe it is The illustrations appear to be oil paintings, which are especially effective during the story within the story of where all t The story and illustrations in this book are very whimsical The story deals with a common coming of age theme wondering if Santa Claus The Easter Bunny etc are real in a sensitive manner which instead of blatantly telling kids It s fake or talking about a related religious or mythical story, tells them that the tooth fairy is as real as they wish to believe it is The illustrations appear to be oil paintings, which are especially effective during the story within the story of where all the magical creatures, like fairies, went I believe the subject matter andcomplex text in the book makes it most appropriate for third graders That s right around when kids start telling each other that Santa and whatnot are fake, and many of them are not yet ready to believe it This story treats that in an open ended fashion through the father s story that long ago, magical and mythical creatures were real but as people slowly began skeptical or out rightly stopped believing in them, each type disappeared one by one The last to leave were the fairies, and the last fairy ever seen told all the children that while no fairies would be seen again, if a child listened closely, they would hear a fairy s voice Instead of getting children s lost teeth, leaving gifts or coins and writing notes themselves, parents would get the teeth, leave the gifts, and sit quietly to hear a fairy s voice tell them what to write Adults can t know whether the voice is from them or the tooth fairy, but if a child believes it s from the tooth fairy, fairies will still exist It s a beautiful, whimsical, sweet story within the story, and the story about the boy is great too
