Miles and I are really getting into The Berenstain Bearsbooks! I cannot believe it’s been 50 years already, seems like it was yesterday when I was reading them as a kid myself.  “The Berenstain Bears and the Tooth Fairy” by Jan and Mike Berenstain did not disappoint.

Sister Bear is growing and getting her adult teeth! Mama and Papa put her baby teeth that had fallen out under her pillow. To Sister Bear’s surprise, she woke up to a quarter! She added the Tooth Fairy in with being as good as Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny.

While playing with her best friend, Lizzy has a loose tooth. Sister tells Lizzy to make sure when it comes out the tooth fairy will bring her a quarter. Lizzy was surprised and told Sister she gets a dollar for each of her teeth. Sister didn’t think this was fair at all.

After a talk with Mama and Papa, she moved on and forgot all about the Tooth Fairy until one day at breakfast she discovered another loose tooth. She hoped for a whole dollar. It took some time before the tooth came out. During a party the tooth came out!

Miles enjoyed “The Berenstain Bears and the Tooth Fairy” by Jan & Mike Berenstain! He is starting to take in the Santa, Easter Bunny and Tooth Fairy. It is a little early for the Tooth Fairy but he fully understands. We love the Berenstain Bears!! Eventually we will have every title on our book shelf.
