Review and Giveaway: When Grandma's False Teeth Fly by Mary Lee

Synopsis:
Katie is not a little girl anymore—she is six years old! But some mean girls at school still tease her about her chipped baby tooth. Katie seeks advice from her grandma, who will tell her a hilarious story that encourages her to use humor instead of anger or sadness to solve her problems. Join Katie and Grandma for a touching, funny, and inspiring story about When Grandma's False Teeth Fly.

Review:
I have a special place in my heart for books I can read with my kids. When I told them the name of this book they were SO excited to read it (and I might have been excited too :-)

Let's face it. Kids can be really (REALLY) mean to each other, and a lot of times it's about something that can't be controlled. In this case, Katie has a cutie little chip in her tooth, and some girls at school make fun of her. Good ol' Grandma to the rescue. She helps her Katie understand that people can only make you feel bad if you let them. Plus, laughter is something that can cure even a chipped tooth.

I read this to my kids, and they loved it! Sometimes a children's book is touching and sweet to the adult reading it, but doesn't translate into something the child actually feels like reading. The illustrations are adorable and easy to follow. A great book to share with that special, little someone (or two . . . or three) in your life.

I'd love this book to read to my little cousins. They're 10 and 7 and it's always good to celebrate differences in people and to learn early on not to make fun of what's different...plus the title is just so funny and our grandma has false teeth!

Thanks so much for the review and giveaway. :)

I would love this book because I am all for helping kids with ways to cope with the cruelty that others inflict. This book would be an asset to our kids(ages 6 & 3) as well as my class(ages 4 & 5). Thanks for considering me! theyward@yahoo.com
