This book has been awarded the Benjamin Franklin Award from PMA, The Independent Book Publishers Association.
There's little that compares in childhood to the dramatic changes that are brought about when a child loses their first tooth. Nothing else is so readily apparent to everyone that the child has gone through a milestone that marks their growth and development into an "elementary-schooler." This time is surrounded with such excitement and anticipation, yet it is often the child's first experience with loss, a change in their physical appearance that will never be the same. That change is in their smile. Truman's Loose Tooth captures the pride, uncertainty, worry and excitement of this rite of passage into childhood through many laughs and heartwarming experiences. The story helps children to adjust to this change in their life and serves as a great stepping stone for coping with changes as a lifelong process. Your child will enjoy reading this book over and over, and you will, too!
