Among my pile of books from London Public Library this week was Barabara Park’s Junie B, First Grade Toothless Wonder. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Junie was the first one with a loose top tooth in her class and I was the last, but it took me back to Gr. 2, and I think librarians and parents will enjoy it almost as much as the target audience. If a child comes into the library asking about the Tooth Fairy, or is worried about or proud of a loose tooth this is a go to book.
