Throw Your Tooth on the Roof Tooth Traditions from Around the World

Do you throw your tooth on the roof of your house, or save it for a mysterious mouse? Read "Throw Your Tooth on the Roof" and learn what children from around the world do with their baby teeth. According to the author of this book there are many countries in which children trust their baby teeth to a magical mouse. In Mexico some children leave their teeth in a box for El Ratón, in the Dominican Republic some throw their teeth on the roof of their houses so a mouse can take it away, and in Argentina some leave their teeth in a glass of water so that during the night a little mouse will drink the water and leave some coins or candy in the empty glass.
