The Dinosaur Tooth Fairy

The Dinosaur Tooth Fairy
By Martha Brockenbrough, illustrated by Israel Sanchez
New York : Arthur A. Levine Books, 2013, Ages 4-8

The Dinosaur Tooth Fairy lives in the museum, where she polishes her giant tooth collection and reminisces about the past.  She is in desperate need for a new tooth.  A little girl with a loose tooth walks through the museum with her class.  The dinosaur Tooth Fairy spots her from afar and goes on a wild adventure to get the tooth.

Brockenbrough's writing style is fun and energetic.  The illustrations done by Israel Sanchez are bright, whimsical, and playful.

The Dinosaur Tooth Fairy is a must for parents of young children. Martha Brockenbrough teaches a lesson in friendship and sharing.
