My Toothbrush Is Missing by Jan Thomas

Has Anyone Seen Dog's Toothbrush?

Giggle Gang Series

Holding a cup and toothpaste tube, Dog declares, 
“My toothbrush is missing!”
 Donkey replies, 
“Oh no! What does a toothbrush look like?” 
He patiently explains that it has bristles.
But Donkey is still looking a bit confused.
"Bristles? Weird. I feel like I've seen it . . .  :
He encourages Dog, Sheep, and Duck to follow him.

But Sheep doesn't have the bristle part quite figured out, since Dog exclaims,
"THAT is not my toothbrush!"
Duck and Sheep have pained expressions as Sheep blurts out,
 "That is Fat Cat!"
And so it goes. Each time Dog elaborates a bit more about what his toothbrush books like, Donkey comes up with a totally silly idea of what might be the toothbrush.

The ending is sure to make kids laugh.

My Thoughts

What Concerned Me: Nothing

What I Liked Most: Jan Thomas does an excellent job of creating a fun story with very few words. Her humor and animals are a perfect fit. There are a few harder words, but not enough to cause a child to feel defeated trying to read this story.
