Peter Sis' story about losing a tooth is a timeless tale. What makes it relevant today is how he weaves through cultures and diversity by simply having his main character, Madlenka, walk around her New York City block. A great lap read or story time pick that highlights how the world really is at your fingertips when you live in the City!
