In The Tooth Fairy Makes A Mistake by Great-Aunt Rita, Michael is thrilled when he looses a tooth. He puts the tooth under his pillow and is happily surprised when he finds fifty dollars the next morning. What he doesn’t know is that the Tooth Fairy accidentally hit the wrong button on her cash register and meant to give Michael five dollars. The Tooth Fairy needs to get the money back otherwise she won’t have enough money for other children. How will this mistake be corrected?
This is a really cute story. My favorite part was the concept of the Tooth Fairy getting the money she gives to children from a cash register. I just find this idea adorable, and it made me smile.
This book helps to teach the importance of admitting when you have made a mistake, and that you should always do your best to fix them. The book also shows that it’s important to accept that other people make mistakes.
Although I don't consider this a negative, there are some words in the story that children who are just learning to read would have trouble with, like accidentally and exclaimed. And there are a few other words, like exchange, that they may not be used to hearing, so they wouldn’t be sure about their meaning, but none of them would be hard for parents to explain.
I loved the illustrations, which are done in a variety of bright, fun colors. I also liked that even the pages that were just text had borders that were in different fun colors and had teeth drawn on them.
Overall, there was nothing I disliked about this book, and there were no editing errors. It’s a great story that contains important lessons about mistakes. It has definitely earned a rating of 5 out of 5 stars. I recommend it to all children ages 4-7.
