The illustrations are lovely, the story simple and pleasant. A fun book from a fun author. Mar 14, Anthony rated it liked it. Based on an actual conversation between the author and his son leads to this tale of magical kingdoms and possibilities to come. Aug 16, Albert rated it did not like it. 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.
Feb 15, Hannah Delaughter rated it liked it Shelves: 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.
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!
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 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 and more complex 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. May 03, Jennifer Wardrip rated it really liked it Shelves: But when Gaby hears, as children do, that the tooth fairy is none other than his parents, he goes directly to his father for an honest answer. His dad goes on to tell him the story of fairies, and how they had to leave the Earth when people stopped believing in them.
Their voice, he says, is what guides the gifts and letter that his father leaves. I loved this book. Besides being beautifully illustrated, I truly enjoyed the story of magical beings and life that the author desribes. I only offer one word of caution. My children are at the age where one wholeheartedly believes in the tooth fairy, and the other still wants to believe. Unless you want a lot of questions--and probably some tears when the truth is discovered--you might do well to stress to your kids that this is a work of fiction. I, for one, still want my children to carry that hope of magic.
Sep 13, Kylee S rated it really liked it Shelves: I really liked this book, especially the pictures! The pictures were drawn very well with lots of detail. I think this is a good book because a lot of children question whether the tooth fairy is real or not and reading this would explain a cute way about if the tooth fairy is real or not. It always would make them feel not alone since the Gabby questions whether his dad is the tooth fairy or not. Oct 17, Cemeread rated it really liked it Shelves: This story was a delightful surprise. With colorful, vibrant pictures it depicts a family tooth fairy tradition and a father's response to an older child's doubts.
I love Jason Alexander's response which is as honest as it it can be, allowing for magic, and lets a child continue to believe without feeling fooled. The author's note includes how to obtain fairy envelopes like those in the story if you would like to start a tradition of your own. Apr 26, Prw rated it really liked it Shelves: I liked how this book shows the various parental roles.
It is great for a class because in a group of 20 or more students, there are so many different parental situations. It can increase conversation and activities and bring different students together who may not have thought they had something in common. I liked that it was about a tooth fairy as well, my parents always switched off that role but it varies in every household!
Apr 10, Lauren Jackson rated it really liked it Shelves: I liked that this story was very realistic because alot of kids believe in alot of things until they come to school and other kids kill their dreams. I think that when chldren have a very active imagiantion like this nobody should ever ruin it. Good for upper grades because younger kids may still believe in the tooth fairy and may go home and ask their parents about fairy tales werent true. Apr 27, Lauren added it Shelves: This is a picture book about a man who plays the role of the tooth fairy for his son.
His son hears rumors that the tooth fairy isn't true so the father needs to explain to him the story behind all tooth fairies. He explains that many years ago they existed but died out because of lack of belief. Now, the father must play the role of the tooth fairy. Aug 04, Relyn rated it did not like it Recommends it for: I am always skeptical about books by tv and movie stars.
This one was a disappointment. The art was nice, but the writing was far too earnest and Well, it was just kind of icky. It bombed with Sloane, too. Apr 03, Donna rated it really liked it Shelves: Expected something goofy and pleasantly surprised. There is always that point in childhood when the magic starts to slip away. But, from Tinkerbelle to Harry Potter, you can still believe in magic and I think this book explained it well. Apr 03, Deanna Donald rated it really liked it Shelves: This is a great book for students who come into the classroom wondering about who the toothfairy really is.
As educators, these questions will arise and what better way to answer such questions than with a book that they can enojoy. Apr 03, Christian Padgett rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book does a good job in explaining the truthful behind the tooth fairy. I warn anyone who does use this book make sure preview it first and really decide when they feel it is appropriate to use for their child.
I would not use this right away within the classroom. May 27, Jennifer rated it liked it. Overall a nice story revolving around a question that I'm sure most parents find difficult. Love the illustrated depictions of all the extra creatures. Oct 09, Datoria rated it it was amazing Shelves: I really liked this book, but it is not a class book.
It reveals that there is not tooth fairy, but it does leave hope in faith in your own beliefs. Feb 13, Suzanne rated it really liked it. I sweet answer to a vexing question. Sep 01, Luke rated it it was amazing. Aug 31, Bill rated it it was amazing. Aug 30, Sarah Hope rated it it was amazing. I can't remember what the book was called or who it was by but it was a children's book about to young girls under the age of five that end up walking to the park from their house without their mother knowing.
I had it read to me in the early 90s. Though I have a feeling it might not have had text possibly just pictures. The story is based around a young boy who comes into possession of a number of animals like tiger, camel, yak etc. Rather than keep them he embarks on a journey to return each of the animals to its country of origin. During the story he also describes some of the culture of the country. If you have any idea on the title of the book i would be most appreciative. One of my friends is looking for a book from his childhood.
It's about a boy who uses shoe boxes to build homes for animals in the forest to protect them from a storm. That's all he remembers. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. My mum was telling me about a book she wanted as a girl. She had read a book called Mouse, and badly wanted Older Mouse and never got it. She's 80 now, and I'd love to find it for her. I'm afraid I don't have any other details, but here's hoping!
This teenage girl decides to babysit this bad kid that everyone warns her about-the kid likes to bite I beleive it was a story that was combined with several other short stories I remember a book from the late 80's 's about a girl who is not supposed to go into the forest but goes further and further to get the pretty flowers. She keeps saying she will only get a few more but the further she goes the prettier they get.
Finally she has to run home because the monster in the woods chased her home, like her mother warned her about. I always loved and once memorized this book. The copy I have lacks cover and first few pages. It must have come from a 'dime store', or grocery rack, and started out: She did not know how she got there, but she awakened one morning in the toe of a slipper". It was read to me, then I read and reread this, read it to each child I baby sat with and to the campers where I was counselor, and my children.
I found an abreviated copy in the 's which was a poor substitute for it. Mine came from the early 's. This would be a dream come true to find it again.

There are some on abe from , the edition we have had, but the first edition seems to be scarce. The early ones are expensive, but you could probably get one for less eventually on ebay. Perhaps you could purchase a very beat up one with the front intact and combine the two books. I am looking for a children's bookI think it is called "The Big Fish". It is about a boy and his father and something about canoeing. An illustration I remember in the book is the father and the boy carrying the canoe over their heads. It has a picture on every or almost every page and everything is in black and white.
I cannot find it anywhere on any search engine. The book was a compilation of stories. I remember I loved the illustrations in this book, particularly this story. If ou have any suggestions, that would be fantastic. Not sure when the book was published, but was before the 90s. Only part I remember is a quote "when God made dogs, He made dogs. I remember a book I had in the 60's that looked like Barbie and she shrunk down and had to find a frog to help her.
It was a large picture book. I only remember bits and pieces of the pictures. I remember her shrinking and her clothes being too big and then of her meeting a toad. Woul dappreciate any help been trying to remember it for years. This book was a large hard covered book that was well illistrated with a lot of short stories aboutbgiants and woodcuts out witting the bad giant etc.. Early 's at school, 3 or 4 book series about a Futuristic Industrial tyrannical World where the equivalent of 'Gladiators' fought to the death in arena's.
I think in groups of upto 3 or 4, might have been solo. I think the lead character Vado, Varga, Vardo something like this wishes to be more, escapes etc. That or he was simply proud of his winning to better improve the faction he was loyal to. Books where 7x5inch soft back, very colorful with one I think having a Grilled Masked type figure holding his gauntleted hand with spikes up. I posted below, it's a coming of age story about a teenager who works for some place on the beach and lives behind or near an abandoned Carasouel his Uncle or father left him.
He is an orpahn and one night this young girl goes swimming in the ocean and he saves her from drowning. He doesn't think much of her but the two build a bond as the book goes on. The girl is supposed to be really skinny and he describes her as ugly and not his type. She is broken like him, and has nightmares. It's a hard book to find, because I read it back in the late 90's it was a young adult fiction.

It had a carasouel with horses on the front cover, I just don't remember the name or authoer. Any help would be great!
Lisa Here is Lisa's previous post, so all the information is together, Suzanne. I read this beautiful story about a young adult who lives in an abandoned Carasouel or behind it and then saves a girl from drowning in the ocean. He doesn't think much of her at first, he gets a job on the beach at some shop. He soon grows to love the girl. It's a hard story to find and I would love to know the title and Author. Thank you so very much it would mean alot to me!
I was given the book Christmas or It had lots of fun Christmas stories. One was a puppy who found a home for Christmas. My favorie was a "German" story about an uncle in a log cabin jail who carved gifts for his niece and nephew. They exchanged the gifts and long Christmas cookies through the jail keyhole. As I recall it has individual stories in it about a naughty fox named Frankie Fox and a bunny that saves the day. The rabbit's name might be Chipper or Chester. One of the stories is about the rabbit saving a candy store and another about him preventing a train from being wrecked by foiling Frankie's plans.
Thanks for any help!

I'm looking for a text book that had a purple cover with a picture of a bee. I'm looking for a book I read as a child in the 90s. Not sure when it was published. I remember a little girl who walks home from school because she skins her knee, I think.
She walks by herself but on the way she talks to rocks, flowers and trees. There's a thunderstorm and she finally makes it home. If you are able to Have you voted yet?

Im looking for a childrens book about a plant looks like a monstera philodendron with large glossy leaves that grows and grows and eventually takes over the inside of house - it has a picture in it of a boy playing a piano in a room filled with the plant. It much have been around in the early 70s when i was a child. Any pointers would be appreciated. I know this book. It was published in Scholastic and had a yellow cover with the plants coming out of the house, kind of a family story.
Once the Election is over, I'll be able to think of it. Meanwhile perhaps someone else will. Here are some other giant plant books which are NOT your book! A funny version of this theme, see also Cresswell's Bongleweed. How could Becky and her father, the gardener, bear to hurt it! Was it perhaps the Finches' Fabulous Furnace by Drury, also from the 70's? The Finch family moves into an old house with a secret source of heat, a small volcano, which makes everything warmer. My grandmother used to have an old book a lot of us grand kids used to read.
It was approx b5 size and about 2inches thick. It had beautiful illustrations in it. Some of the stories it had in it were "puss in boots", "the gingerbread man", Ali baba, rumpelstilskin, and a whole lot more. I can't remember the title of this book but the only thing I can remember is that the cover was a olive green colour, with a dark green band and an image of a castle on the covers spine. Any help in finding out the name of this book would be greatly appreciated and maybe a picture too.
I think i have that book. There is an old pic of a mother sitting with two little girls. Thank you Millie, I certainly missed this one. This book is the first of 12 Rainbow Editions of the Book House. See our page for more than you want to know about Book Houses! Scroll about a third of the way down to see the book you are talking about. I remember reading this book years ago; I think it may have been from the '80s. It took place in a circus, and the book began with a clown asking the reader to hold a string for him It may have been a rope, but I'm pretty sure it was a string , and the reader then follows the string, which leads them to a series of other circus performers in humorous situations most of said circus performers had odd names, though regrettably I don't remember what they were.
There were acrobats, a man and a lady with a nasty little dog whose name was Spotted Shrimp; he was black with white spots , and I think even some animals, such as elephants. The book eventually ends with something like, "So, the next time you're at the circus and a clown asks you to hold a string, follow it. You never know what you might find. The books title was something like,"What's On the Other End? I remember reading this book when I was a kid. I think it was made in the '80s. A little boy who I believe had brown hair is looking for a pet, and visits this very odd pet shop; I remember that the entire story was in rhyme.
The pet shop owner presents him with several different pets, each with some bizzare and annoying trait, such as a robot-like creature who cleans up everything and a minotaur-like creature who messes up everything, a creature with a scissors-shaped head and I think a glue-brush shaped tail who cuts and glues whatever he can get his hands on, several tiny, car shaped creatures who go zooming everywhere, a raccoon in I think a Centurion helmet who causes various kinds of mischief, and a giant sphinx-like creature with a TV-screen face who breathes fire.
The boy as one might suppose turns each one of them down, until he's presented with a regular, normal dog. The pet shop owner insists that the boy couldn't possibly want the dog "She does not cut, she does not glue, she is not the pet for you! Any information would be much appreciated! I am looking for a picture book in print in the 's to 's. It was a book of colors. Some of the words were as follows: Brown bear my brown bear smiles Pink doll my pink doll sleeps Purpe pinwheel my purple pinwheel twirls Gray car my gray car zooms Yellow horn my yellow horn toots Green boat my green boat sails Black engine my black engies goes Thanks!
My mother read to me from a book of children's stories my grandmother was German and I wonder if the tales could have been translated from German to English that were cautionary tales.
One story was about a little girl who didn't appreciate anything and so one by one she lost everything that was important to her. The sheep came during the night and took away their wool, the trees, took away their wood, etc. The illustrations were dark because the action always happened at night. I remember the girl wearing a white nightgown. The other story I remember was about a little girl who worried about everything. Same dark pictures, but the one vivid illustration in my mind is an axe stuck in the ceiling of the attic or basement and the girl constantly worried it would fall and hurt her.
I have searched my whole adult life for this book of tales. I don't remember the cover or even how big the book was, but it seems the size of the book was about an 8 x Hi, there's this book I read in the 90s about a trolley or car or something, and that a young kid goes in it and travels back in time This might be the Phantom Tollbooth by Norman Juster. It's not a time travel book, Milo gets the car for his birthday and puts money in the tollbooth to go to a magic land.
The dog is a watchdog called Tock, he has a big clock on his side. They have to journey to rescue 2 princesses called Rhyme and Reason, with various adventures along the way, such as meeting a boy who starts out with his head at his adult height and grows downwards till he touches the floor. Does this sound familiar? I'm not from this website, but I thought your book description sounded familiar. Could the book you're looking for be The Phantom Tollbooth? It doesn't have to do with time travel at least I don't think so , but the main character's name was Milo, there was a car, and there was a dog.
I think you're right. People are always welcome to try and ID the books on this site. My friend told me about this book where a girl was born around 9 ft tall and later on in the book she fought a bear I would really like to know what this book is. This was a childrens book most likely published between It was an illustrated book. My memories are vague with the story but its about a prince in a kingdom. Setting appears to be 18th century france from the illustrations. Anyway everyone hates the prince because he is a spoiled brat. The king dies and its a big problem for the rest of the kingdom.
The story also involves a girl who lives in the countryside. She has animal friends. I distinctly remember a bear and possibly a wolf. The prince ends up at the girls house and has to help her out with chores and of course they eventually fall in love. I don't remember much else except that the girl ends up having to go to a ball. She has nothing to wear on her head so the bear gives her his golden collar which becomes a circlet for her hair.
The story is reminiscent of a beauty and the beast type story the prince changes his ways and its probably set in france. I am longing for a book I used to have when I was a child that I can only see vauge pictures of in my mind. I remember most clearly the Mary Mary Quite Contrary rhyme which had an illustration of the "pretty maids all in a row" with just girl's heads coming out of the ground with flower petals for hair. I think the cover of the book had a little girl walking in the rain carrying an umbrella and I think this book was a dark color, blue or gray.
I know this is not much to go on but any help would be appreciated! I am looking for a book my mother had when she was young would have probably been published in the 50's or 60's. The front of the book showed the alphabet and then there were several stories including two children going to toy land, a little sweet shop and a little boy eating his breakfast out of a bowl which had humpty dumpty on it. The front of the book had two or three children carrying building blocks which showed 'A, B, C' hopefully someone may know who wrote this book as it was thrown out by accident.
