This week in the library...

Did you know that February is Children's Dental Health Month?  To celebrate, we'll be reading stories that will really make you smile!

Third grade will be reading Arthur's Tooth by Marc Brown.

Arthur's whole class has started losing their teeth-but not Arthur. His loose tooth wiggles but won't come out. Everyone seems to think they have the best solution. But none of their ideas work! Will he be stuck with his tooth forever?

Click on the book cover to view a video of Arthur's Tooth being read aloud! 

Fourth grade will be reading The Tooth Mouse by Susan Hood.

Did you know that in France the tooth fairy doesn't leave money under children's pillows?  A mouse does it instead--the Tooth Mouse!

Fifth grade will be listening to a book talk about Smile by Raina Telgemeier.

Raina just wants to be a normal sixth grader. But one night after Girl Scouts she trips and falls, severely injuring her two front teeth. What follows is a long and frustrating journey with on-again, off-again braces, surgery, embarrassing headgear, and even a retainer with fake teeth attached. And on top of all that, there's still more to deal with: a major earthquake, boy confusion, and friends who turn out to be not so friendly.
