Today we listened to a book called ‘The Tooth.’ It was about a little girl named Marisa that gave up her tooth to a homeless man. It was written by Avi Slodovnick and illustrated by Manon Gauthier.
I think that this was a very thoughtful, but sad text. I say that this is thoughtful because it begins with a simple trip to the dentist and ends with a girl giving everything that she has to a homeless man. Even though the tooth doesn’t bring any money. It’s the fact that this little girl actually sacrificed her tooth. Which she thought would bring money to a man that she doesn’t even know!I also say that it is sad because in the book it also talks about how the people in the street didn’t even acknowledge the man. It just proves how some people in the world just don’t care about other people that are suffering.
