I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest blog review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
When Lori Orlinsky sent me a copy of her first book a few months ago, I instantly loved it and couldn’t wait to share it with my blog readers. Over time and many emails, I came to realize that I not only love her book but I also love Lori! Her and I have become “real life” friends and we even met for a fun and delicious dinner (local friends, if you haven’t yet tried The Hampton Social you MUST…aaaaand now I’m craving one of their AMAZING lobster rolls). Lori, let’s go back!
I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a copy of Lori’s newest book, The Tooth Fairy’s Tummy Ache! And exactly as predicted…it’s every bit as adorable as her first.
Ellie has been eagerly awaiting the day she can finally trade in her first baby tooth for a coveted prize from the Tooth Fairy. But when the time comes, the unthinkable happens! Ellie swallows her tooth!
Knowing she can’t disappoint the Tooth Fairy, Ellie decides to lie about what really happened to her tooth. But when her fib leads to big trouble in Fairyland, will Ellie be able to set things right again?
Man, this book could not have come to our house at a more perfect time. My daughter has lost so many teeth recently that I am back to cutting her produce off the core just as I did when she was a toddler 🙂
Talking about the tooth fairy is a daily occurrence in our house. My daughter LOVES her tooth fairy. Who wouldn’t?!? Check this out…
Every time her tooth fairy comes, she leaves money sprinkled with pink fairy dust!
She also always leaves a beautiful gem picked especially for my daughter.
The very first time she came, she left this gorgeous tooth fairy necklace!
Last week, my daughter lost 2 teeth IN THE SAME DAY! Obviously her tooth fairy had to leave something extra special that night.
As both a teacher and a parent, I can attest that nothing is better than when children can learn an important life lesson without actually having to be “taught”. This book is such a perfect example of this. A lesson about why lying is wrong woven throughout a fun, entertaining, captivating book that any child would love to read?? YES PLEASE!
The rhyming is spot on, the word choices are age appropriate, and the lesson behind the story is brilliant.
As for the illustrations, I absolutely love them. The characters are ADORABLE and everything is so wonderfully and colorfully drawn. Beautiful, whimsical illustrations for a beautiful, whimsical story.
My 8 Year Old Daughter’s Thoughts:
“I liked it because this author used her imagination with what tooth fairies do with the teeth. This book says to never lie. I liked the pictures because they had a lot of color!”
My 3.5 Year Old Son’s Thoughts:
“THUMBS UP! I liked seeing the pictures of the Tooth Fairy. You can’t lie because people won’t know it’s the real thing. They were the best pictures I ever saw in a tooth fairy book.”
A Conversation with Lori Orlinsky, In Her Own Words:
How did you create the idea for your book?
I’ve always been interested in the Tooth Fairy. Growing up Jewish and not having Santa or the Easter Bunny to believe in, I believed VERY HARD in the Tooth Fairy! When my first tooth came out, I lost it. I remember searching through garbage cans with my parents, and I was so scared the Tooth Fairy wouldn’t come and played so many scenarios out in my head. That’s where the inspiration came from.

Any additional information that you would like to provide about you or your book:
I believe reading often naturally leads to important discussions we want to have with our children in a way that doesn’t feel forced. Instead of sitting your child down and saying “we need to talk about honesty,” where they may feel like they are in trouble, I created this book as a lead-in to that topic by using the Tooth Fairy of all things!
