Loved this book! Just a simple story for children to follow about a little girl. All of my children enjoyed it! If you like this book you should also check out Blueberries for Sal. We have read that numerous times and they still love it :)

This is a fantastic book about how a young girl named Sal learns about the wonders of growing up after she loses her first baby tooth. The beautiful illustrations are black and white, giving this story an old fashioned feeling. I love the way McCloskey is able to take the stuff of everyday life and suffuse it with a gentle humor and an obvious understanding of the inner workings of a child's mind. I would recommend this book to children who also have experience the wonders of a loose baby tooth.

One Morning in Maine is about a young girl, named Sal who wakes up to find her tooth is loose. She is very excited about the day ahead of her because she gets to go to Buck's Harbour with her dad. As she loses her baby tooth, she wonders about the world of growing up. This book has everything you would want in a children's picture book because the illustrations are very intriguing, and the book is also a teaching tool about the way children grow up. It is a very calming book that emphasizes that everyone experiences changes in their life and that it will be okay. I recommend this book to every child and parent that struggles through changes, such as losing a tooth.

I recommend this book to those willing to navigate through the life of a girl who lives in Maine. This book can be introduced in a classroom when exploring different states. It depicts life in the early 70's. The overall theme of the book is very beneficial to kids because they learn that little things lost are easy to get over because it makes them stronger and prepares them for similar things that may occur in the future. The illustrations are delightful and interesting, and actual look realistic to pictures of Maine. I do believe that some younger children may find this book hard to connect to because they may not be interested in the typical life of others but because my interest is diverse I was able to enjoy the book.

This book is a great children's story that anyone can easily enjoy.It is the story about a young girl who loses her tooth and goes to the grocery store with her father. The book is very simple and easy to read but it contains many interesting events that go on like digging for clams and eating ice cream. One of my favorite things about this book is how detailed and realistic the illustrations are. That is the first thing that caught my eye as a reader. Aside from that I definitely recommend this book for young readers because it is entertaining, easy to relate to, and easy to read. I really enjoyed the lesson that was in the story which was "little losses are not much, in relation to the tooth, and life goes on."
