Batina’s Best First Day is a skillfully written children’s story that teaches several important lessons: Always do your best, accept other people’s differences, never give up and (of course) brush your teeth!

This story is adorable and whimsical, and kids will love those fairies. The illustrations are enchanting and give good pace and movement to the story, breathing life into the characters.

Ditto underlines the importance of well-brushed teeth from a tooth fairy’s point of view, an intriguing choice since children are generally more interested in what the collector leaves under their pillows.

Tooth Fairy Day Celebration is a fun series installment that’s less focused on dental hygiene and more on magical hijinks.
