Do You ‘Believe’ in Tooth Fairies in Your Home?

Look, Mommy! My tooth has fallen out. I’m so excited for the tooth fairy to come for a visit!

To parents with a child or children around the age of 5 or 6, the above statement is going to be a very familiar one (if not already)… maybe not to all, but I’m pretty sure it would be, or is, to many. And maybe it is not the tooth fairy exactly, but some other kind of tooth legend that teaches and gives courage about losing one’s baby teeth.

As a parent, I am one of those that talks about tooth fairies and, of course, becomes one too. Obviously, I don’t actually become a tooth fairy. I just mean that, I have to make sure that what is expected of the tooth fairy to do before my kid wakes up is actually done, by me. Which of course entails replacing the tooth that my kid left under her pillow with a £1… or so. (Yeah, being the tooth fairy these days is getting more and more expensive.)

But, I’m not complaining. In fact, I like the idea of tooth fairies. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have it in our home.

There’s just something about make-believe magical characters that, if you look hard enough, bring a certain kind of positive magic into our lives. It’s not a kind of magic that is physically seen or tangible, but a kind of magic that lifts one’s spirit and outlook in life. A kind of magic that makes you feel good. The kind that makes you feel inspired. The kind that makes you believe that great things are possible.

At least that’s what I think. And the more I thought about it, the more I realised that there has to be a good story behind the whimsical creatures that we bring our kids to ‘believe’ in (even for just a few years in their life).

And that is how my new novelette for middle-graders, Believe, came about. It is my own justification, as a parent, as to why we introduce make-believe characters to our young children.

As for the story itself, it is about a young girl’s magical adventure from being an ordinary sceptic to becoming an extraordinary being that children believed in. It is a fast-paced story that not only takes the young readers along the heroine’s journey, but also leads them to something very important – to hope, and to Believe.

Believe is now available on Amazon worldwide in Kindle and paperback formats. And for a limited time, it is FREE to read on Kindle Unlimited.

Here’s a wonderful review of the book from Goodreads.
