Children’s Book: “Andrew’s Loose Tooth” (multiracial)

Andrew’s Loose Tooth

by Robert Munsch

I’ve been on a quest this summer to find books that reflect multiracial families. This is a super funny one! The book is about…you guessed it, a little boy who has a loose tooth. His parents, the dentist, his friend–even the Tooth Fairy–find wacky ways of pulling Andrew’s tooth that no one should ever try! (WARNING: do NOT read to children who have not already lost a tooth…you will scare them to death!)

One of my favorite things about this author (aside from his books being hilarious) is the fact that heĀ incorporates diverse families in the illustrations. This family appears to have a white mother, white father, white child (Andrew) and two brown children. Andrews best friend is Asian, the Tooth Fairy is brown and the people in the city are are very diverse.

Here’s dad with the kids:

Read it, let me know what you think!
