"My little one actually sat
still for this book! When Grandma's False Teeth Fly is
an adorable story that reminds grown-ups and children alike to
be able to laugh at ourselves. When 6-year-old Katie comes home
from school, she tells Grandma ALL about her day. It was pretty
good day until some mean girls start laughing at Katie's chipped
tooth. Then Grandma tells Katie a VERY funny story about the
day her false teeth flew into a bowl of chocolate pudding at a
church social! One of reasons I love When Grandma's False
Teeth Fly is it teaches children they have the power to
control a situation. They can turn something awkward into
something they can laugh about. " (Click here to

"When Grandma's False
Teeth Fly is a cute book that is well received by children.
I have had the opportunity to read this book to several third
grade classes who thoroughly enjoyed it. We were able to
discuss the topics of embarrassment, bullying, relationships
with grandparents, memories, sharing stories, and even baby
teeth vs. adult teeth. It is a book that youngsters will be
able to learn to read on their own after hearing the book
several times. It is a great lesson regarding taking an
embarrassing situation and turning it into a positive situation.
It opens the door to discussing bullying, although this book
doesn't provide a lot of solutions, the conversation will lead
to adults sharing possible strategies with the children
listening to the story. I feel the best lesson is helping
children learn how to change an embarrassing moment from a
"laughing at" moment to a "laughing with" moment. We all could
improve in that department."
