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.

This is a book about Junie B. Jones loosing her first tooth, and the emotions she experiences during this time. She is the first person to lose a tooth in her first grade class and she is excited, but still scared because she is told that she may end up looking like her toothless Uncle Lou. When she finally loses her tooth, she realizes that she doesn't look weird, but that she looks fascinating! She can't wait to show off her new smile. She is still struggling with the fact that she doesn't thi ...more

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Read this to some kids while babysitting. This book really brings back memories of my mother reading Junie B. Jones to me when I was a young child. :)

Does not spill the beans, but does bring up questioning from most children (all three of mine started asking a bit more)

Maebry and I started reading these together this past year. This one had us both laughing out loud! I don't always agree with Junie's attitude and words, but she sure is silly 😊
