What should Little Rabbit do with her loose tooth when it come out in a dish of chocolate ice cream?
Throw it away?
Wear it on a necklace?
Draw stars around it and hang it on the wall?
Try to buy some candy with it?
Or leave it under the pillow for the tooth fairy?
Little Rabbit solves her dilemma in this gentle classic that captures all the excitement of losing a first tooth - in a book just the right size for pillow-tucking.

From Booklist * Starred * "Delightfully familiar family dialogue surrounds the momentous loss of a first tooth by a rabbit girl. Large-scale three-color drawings depict the same warm, homey details lodged in the text and clinch the book's sure appeal."
