Tooth Fairy Quotes and Quotes About Teeth

The Tooth Fairy is a mythical figure who visits children at night to spirit away a tooth that has fallen out and to leave a gift (usually money) in its place. Most countries have traditions related to losing baby teeth, but The Tooth Fairy is not a worldwide custom. In some countries, the "fairy" is a mouse. In other countries, it's common to throw your teeth into the sky. In celebration of all these traditions, here are some Tooth Fairy quotes and other quotes about teeth

Another Tooth Fairy Poem

Last night while you silently slept,

Into your room I quietly crept,

I found the tooth you left for me,

And left a surprise for you to see!

Thanks for the tooth!

Amazon review: Eat your heart out, tooth fairy. According to the informal research of the author, the world is full of other, equally fascinating myths and traditions about what happens, or should be done, when those milk choppers part company with childish gums. If you come from Chile or Costa Rica, your parents will have the tooth made into a charm. If you're Venezuelan, you put the tooth under your pillow and hope that a mouse brings you money. (Oddly enough, mice, milk teeth, and money are associated all over the world.) Playful illustrations by G. Brian Karas include a world map, plus lots of fun depictions of the world's dentally challenged junior inhabitants.
