What is it like to lose a tooth?
How will Grady handle being made fun of?
“Oh I lotht a ttttooth!” says Grady. It is Grady’s first experience losing a tooth. It felt strange with a gap between his teeth. No matter how much he tried, his speech was not the same. It made Grady wonder more about teeth.
Grady discovers that growing up is tough. He didn’t want to be made fun of. Many of our readers would experience the same or would be when placed in a similar situation. How will our readers handle it?
Through Grady Loses A Tooth – educators, parents and friends will have a number of opportunities to ease into conversations about common anxiety of losing a first tooth, of being made fun of, or bullied for other reasons, or how opportunities are created in times of adversity.
We will go on an adventure into the evolved stories of our growing-up years: What is the beanstalk that Jack planted like after 30 years? What happened to the Army of Playing Cards from Alice in Wonderland? How has the houses made of sticks, straw and bricks in the Three Little Pigs evolved since? What is a modern tooth fairy like?
