Heather the Scared Tooth Fairy – Review

Heather the scared tooth fairy on The Gemini Mama

 

It has been a while since we have had a new children’s book over here. I was given the opportunity to review a copy of Heather the Scared Tooth Fairy, and decided to give it a whirl.

 

Heather, the Scared Tooth Fairy

This book is unique book because the illustrations are all hand drawn, and the book is written, illustrated, and published by a mother daughter team. How exciting!

 

You should know usually prior to agreeing to review a book, I look it up online and do a preliminary check. It gives me a better idea of what to expect, and if it would be a good fit for us. I did not do that with this book. I can’t say exactly why, I just didn’t. The description seemed perfect, and I just went with it.

 

From Amazon;

At tooth fairy school, Heather is too scared to meet her new flight teacher to go to school. Find out what silly and amazing things happen when Heather meets her new flight teacher for the first time.

 

I have to admit when it first arrived I was a little bit disappointed. I am not sure what I was expecting, but I was totally judging the book by it’s cover. Bad mom move. Being that my kids love books and story time we read it despite my dismay. My kids were completely unphased with my lackluster for the book. They were immediately sucked into the story. The words “a hush fell over the crowd” would describe what happened perfectly.

We went on a fun adventure with Heather. I enjoyed how the story rhymed, which made it fun to read. I also love that the story really flows with the imagination of a child, because I think that is why K1 was so into the book. I also thought that the illustrations in the story might inspire her artwork some.

 

I know my daughter really enjoyed this story. I read this book to her at bedtime and then the kids immediately went to sleep. When K1 (my 3 year old) woke up in the middle of the night she started telling me about the tooth fairy. How cute! I really thought much of the story was over her head, but after that I knew she was both paying attention, and enjoyed it.

 

The Verdict

After my initial judgement of the book I realized that I was wrong. I am glad that I did not check it out online before saying yes to review it, because we likely would have missed out on a fun read. This is a completely enjoyable story with cute hand drawn  illustrations. I also love the mother daughter team aspect.

 

Want this book? Great news! As of the date of this post, Heather, The Scared Tooth Fairy is available as a Kindle book for only 99 cents!

 

Just as a disclosure, I received this book in hopes that I would complete an honest review. All of the opinions expressed in this post are my own, and may differ from yours.
