“AROUND THE WORLD IN 32 TEETH” 978-1-59849-071-8
Follow Jamie on his world wide journey with the Tooth Fairy to 32 different countries to explore the different customs and cultures of what to do when you lose your first tooth.
How did you get your idea for Around the World in 32 Teeth?
As I mentioned in my biography, my mother used to be a tour guide and she taught me as I was growing up of the many traditions that she had learned on her travels around the world of what children do when they lose their first tooth. At the age of 15, I had a school project for the IB program and I decided to use all these traditions to make my first book. Since my dream has always been to become an author I thought that this would be the perfect start. I wrote to all the National Tourist Organizations around the world to confirm that the stories my mom had told me were true. I also researched how to say hello in every country, along with the most popular names so each child coming from those countries I chose would identify with my story. The reason I choose 32 countries was because we have 32 teeth, but we must not forget that there are so many other countries with their unique traditions that unfortunately it wasn’t possible to include them all.
Go to OTHER TRADITIONS to find more information about the countries mentioned along with the many others around the world. If you have an interesting tradition and would like to share it with the rest of the world, we would appreciate hearing from you at [email protected]
I hope you enjoy this book as much as I had creating it
