One day Bear lost a tooth. Franklin did not know what that meant since he didn't have any teeth. On the bus Franklin asked what happens after you lose a tooth. After they got out of the bus Fox told Franklin about the tooth fairy. Bear told the teacher he lost a tooth. The teacher said he was growing up. Franklin went home and wrote a note to the tooth fairy and gave her a false tooth. In the morning he found a letter from the tooth fairy, but he did not get a present. The letter said turtles do not have teeth. He got a book from his mom and dad instead.

Our favorite part of the story is when Franklin got a present from his parents because it makes him happy. He is our favorite character because he has this adventure. In this story Bear has teeth just like we do. The pictures in the book help explain the story.

We think you should read it because it teaches people to trick anyone. We learned it is always better to tell the truth.
