Mommy Read it Again: I Lost My Tooth in Africa by Penda Diakité

I Lost My Tooth in Africa

by Penda Diakité (Author), Baba Wagué Diakité (Illustrator)

I stumbled across this book at the library while browsing and was drawn in by the hilarious and cute title. The story is about what happened when the author’s sister lost her tooth on a family trip to Mali (spoiler: there are chickens involved). The illustrations are eye-catching and joyful, and the story is just as fun as the title. Preschooler Monkey is very eager to lose a tooth now! (As I’m writing this, she’s upstairs playing with her cousin. “Let’s pretend we’re in Africa! I lost my tooth!”)
