It's the first day of first
grade. The little girl is really excited -- until the bus ride to
school, that is. A second grade girl warns her about Mrs. Watson.
She's really a three hundred year old alien who steals baby teeth from
her students! Oh no. Can you get through all of first grade
with your mouth shut?
Is Mrs. Watson, first grade
teacher, really a three hundred year old alien? Does she really steal baby
teeth? What a quandary for a poor first grader who has a loose tooth. She
is afraid to speak. She is afraid to eat. She is afraid to open her mouth
for anything! Discover what happens when her tooth pops out of her mouth!
Second graders are such a font of reliable information. (Jean B.
