A curious bear's loose tooth teaches him valuable lessons about bravery, tolerance, and the power of a loving family.

Zach's tooth is loose. But what's a bear with a loose tooth to do when his mom tells him to stay away from people, and he's eager for a visit from the Tooth Fairy?

Zach is in a bear-y bind. What if the Tooth Fairy turns out to be human? When Zach asks his sister, Leah, what to do, she's too busy with her friends to help. Mom offers some comfort, but it's not enough to calm her little bear's fears. Then Zach's tooth finally falls out. And on a special night, when he tucks his tooth under his pillow — and hopes against hope — something unexpected and magical happens!

From the creators of the popular picture books Monday is One Day and Uncle Bobby's Wedding comes an adorable story about the power of believing what's possible.
