Book of the Week

Albert's Impossible Toothache, by Barbara Williams, was given to us by good friends, and we LOVE it.

Albert Turtle wakes up complaining of a toothache, but his family is unsympathetic. After displaying their toothlessness and expressing that it's impossible for anyone in the family to have a toothache, his family goes about the day, allowing Albert to remain in bed with his pain.

Albert turns down opportunities to have fun, eat his favorite foods, and look at family photos because of his impossible toothache.

Until Grandma Turtle comes over and helps Albert with his toothache.

I won't ruin the end for you. It really must be read in its original context. Suffice it to say, we love this book!
