In the book Franklin and the Tooth Fairy Franklin sees that bear keeps his tooth after losing it and is very confused. Franklin does not have any teeth, so his friends have to explain the tooth fairy to him, and tell him about how she leaves presents because you are growing up. That night, Franklin leaves a small white rock under his pillow and writes to the tooth fairy, but the next morning he gets a note back saying nice try, but turtles don’t have teeth. However, Franklin then sees a big pres ...more

I like this series of books for two reasons: they made a television show out of it so kids can see both the book and video version and the first page of each story is the same. The repetition gives the kids something to remember and look forward to. I like this particular book because it makes losing teeth an exciting thing. Also, I found it very important for kids to believe in something like the tooth fairy at a young age so I also like the book for encouraging that.

At first my thoughts of this book was that it wasn’t that good but now I think of it more fondly.

Franklin and his innocence of not knowing of the tooth fairy because turtle do not have teeth. His friend Bear looses his first tooth to make room for his growing up teeth. To Franklin this is a sign that Bear is growing up. So if Franklin does not have teeth how can he ever grow up. That is the dilemma that Franklin asks his parents.

There were some different and creative tooth fairies in this book

I think this book would be the most appropriate from kindergarten to second grade. All of these grades could be highly engaged with a story that is about the tooth fairy. Depending on the reading level of the students, first graders would be able to read this book. It could be challenging for kindergarten, or a starting place for second graders.

This book does a great job of teaching about diversity. Franklin's friend Bear loses his first tooth and Franklin realizes he doesn't have any teeth so the tooth fairy can't bring him any gifts. Franklin is sad all day at school and when he gets home he tells his parents he wants teeth. That night Franklin finds a pebble outside that resembles a tooth and puts it under his shell. In the morning he finds a note from the tooth fairy saying nice try but she knows turtle's don't have teeth. At break ...more
Franklin was one of my favorite shows when I was little and one of my favorite books to read with my parents. I love being able to share them with the girls now.

Franklin's friends are all losing their teeth and he doesn't understand why he doesn't have any teeth to lose. He ask his parents and they tell him that turtles do not have teeth. He feels that he is so different than everyone else because of this so he sends the tooth fairy a letter and puts a stone under his pillow. The tooth fairy knew that turtles didn't have teeth And she didn't leave him a present. In the end Franklin's patents told him that he is special and that it is okay to be differen ...more
I didn't realize or think about the fact that turtles don't have teeth before reading this book. Franklin is so worried because he doesn't have any teeth to leave for the tooth fairy. It's a good story to help children realize that it's okay that we are all different in our own sort of way. My favorite part is the letter the tooth fairy leaves when Franklin tries to pass of a small rock for a turtle tooth. "Sorry. Turtles don't have teeth. Good try. Your friend, The Tooth Fairy".

This was a nice book with cute illustrations. There's a subtle litte message that we are all different, yet all the same. Peace on earth, holding hands around the campfire.

Anyways, while it was a good book I won't be seeking it out to read again.

Cute, passed the time in the dentist's waiting room. I didn't feel like the author resolved the "conflict" in the book very well. How does a parent address a child's jealousy for something that can't be changed?
Michelle Carter
Why don't turtles have teeth and what is a tooth fairy? These are some of the questions that Franklin asks in this cute book about something that happens to little children - losing those baby teeth.

Poor Franklin feels bad because, being a turtle and having no teeth, he can't put a tooth under his pillow to exchange for a gift from the tooth fairy. What to do? Cute!
I love to read this book to students when they start losing teeth in Kindergarten and First Grade. It also teaches about how it is okay to be different than our friends!
I don't like the tooth fairy but I like that in this book it's more about losing teeth and so on instead of the tooth fairy.
An okay picture book. I think there are much better tooth fairy stories out there, though.
Works great to incorporate into a dental lesson!
Nice book, nice drawings.
