Ada Loses a Tooth

Malin Clausson & Cissi Wellin

“Of course, I want to lose my first tooth,” Ada said self-confident in the school cafeteria the other day, when she and Livia compared their loose teeth.

“Yeah, but be prepared. It hurts A LOT,” said Sigrid who got her gap already during the summer. Since then she lost even two more teeth, has a new one coming up, and several loose ones. So now she pronounces ‘Sigrid’ with a wheezing sound. Ada is jealous of Sigrid. She too wants to have difficulty saying ‘s’, and have new, big teeth on their way.

This is the story of a loose tooth. Ada both does and does not want to lose it. She is afraid it will hurt and constantly thinks about it. What is the best way to lose it? She prefers doing it without even noticing … The perfect book to read out loud to someone who is about to lose their first tooth. It is fully illustrated in color, and told with both humor and seriousness. At the end of the book there are facts about baby teeth, and the reason why one has to lose them.
