This is one of my favorite Junie B. Jones books. I really love the conclusion Junie B. comes to about what the tooth fairy does with all the teeth she collects from girls and boys who have lost them. I am planning on using the same reasoning with my children.

When reading this book, I was flashing back to when my teacher would read chapter books out loud to us toward the end of the day. In this book, Junie B. Jones's is the first student to lose her tooth in Room One. She is terrified to leave her tooth with the tooth fairy, because she thinks its the "tooth witch". She takes her spit cup to class on Monday after the weekend and shows the children and then shows them her missing whole. Her teacher gave her a gold star for loosing her tooth. In the en...more
Barbara Park does a wonderful job with bringing such fun and animation to a child's new experiences like loosing her first tooth, as Junie B. does in this book! Toothless Wonder allows me to relive that feeling of loosing my first tooth again, and so much more fun. Junie B. experiences her first loose tooth with some bumps in the road such as Grandpa wiggling her tooth and expediting its removal, as well as her reluctance at first to leave her tooth under the pillow for the Tooth Fairy (why woul...more
Junie B. is the first in her class to have a top tooth come loose! She is so excited about it and can't wait to lose her tooth, except she doesn't want to look like toothless Uncle Al. So she tries to unloosen her tooth by not wiggling it. Plus she is afraid of the tooth fairy because she thinks she is a tooth witch! Who comes in at night to chomp on teeth like they are apples, which makes more sense because what does a tooth fairy want with teeth anyway? At school the kids decide that the tooth...more
At first, Junie thinks it's a tooth witch, not a tooth fairy because what would a tooth fairy do with all the teeth? And that night she didn't put it under her pillow. The next morning, Lucille told Junie B. that the tooth fairy might collect teeth and that recess she promised one of her friends that she would put her tooth under pillow that night. I can't wait to lose a tooth and I liked this book.

I am obsessed with the Junie B. Jones series. I find them very easy to read and very enjoyable to read. This book in particular is my favorite. This is a very humorous book, just like all her others, about loosing a tooth. She wonders what happens to her teeth once the tooth fairy takes them from under her pillow. The conclusion of the book is my favorite part. It is so clever and I would love to have the imagination like Junie B.

I think this is a very relatable book because every student goes t...more

A hilarious book of the account of Junie B., who lost her tooth. She wonders what the tooth fairy does with the teeth she gathers. A wonderful read for children who are about to lose their first tooth, or ones who have baby brothers. Cute, creative writing style.
Unit on losing a tooth, families.
Another read with Kennadi. Kennadi was in the middle of losing her tooth when we started reading, and lost it by the time we were done! Kennadi could relate with how Junie felt and was excited that they mirrored each other, if only for a moment.
Libby's favorite part is Junie getting so freaked out about losing her tooth. She wants to give this book five stars for being exciting and entertaining and making her laugh.
I love ALL Junie B. Jones books, but this is our family favorite. Don't miss the part about Lucille's richie Nana's "cattle-act" in Chapter 1. It's ooh-la-la good.
Junie had many worries, but once she got her tooth out, she learned a lesson. The thing I didn't like was that she bragged so much, when her tooth fell out.
HAHA. I used to love to read these books.. I thought they were so funny, and sadly I would do a little kid voice when i read them. Aww, childhood.

How do I know this is a good book? My son stares at my mouth as I read, as if he can't wait to hear the next words to come out of it.
My 6 year old daughter loves the Junie B Jones series. She reads them to me before bed. We often laugh at loud together.
Wraps up a little too neatly for my taste, but it still has good bits like Junie's whacked out beliefs about the tooth fairy.
All of the Junie B. Jones books are amazingly amazing! In this one Junie has an adventure losing her first tooth!! OMG! :D
In this book Junie B. Jones’ front teeth are loose. At first Junie is excited that she is the first person in her class to be losing her front teeth, but then a friend tells her about their “toothless Uncle Lou.”

I like this books because students can easily relate to Junie B. Jones, it may seem like such a small thing to us, but a big things to a child.
This is also another series of books so the students can continue to relate to Junie B. Jones and her struggles and how she handles the situation...more
My son LOVED this book. We read it as part of his Book-It program at school. (The sad truth is, I liked it too!)

I read this book like 5 years ago. I just put it because I wanted to display ALL the books I've read.
This is a good book for kids that are just starting to lose their teeth like 1st or 2nd grade.
I liked it because she was curious about the tooth fairy because she thought it was a tooth witch.
this book is another one that i think is really adorable. it kinda reminds me of myself!!!
I give 1,000,000 stars!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My favorite part is when she lost her tooth.

Junie B., First Grader: Toothless Wonder is about Junie B. being the first student in her class to have a loose tooth. In the beginning of the story, Junie B. is very proud that she is the first one in her entire class to have a loose a tooth so much that she wanted a prize from her teacher. Of course the teacher didn't have one for this sort of thing but made something up for Junie B. On her way home from school Junie B. is talking to a classmate of hers and comes to the conclusion if she loses...more
