"I have a group of books, which chronicle aspects of child development. The Tooth Fairy is a benign lie. Myth or no, I can not imagine the Tooth Fairy tossing teeth into a heap. The solution to the storage problem is a library of teeth. In Illinois, teeth keep children out of school. Children are excluded from the learning environment if they don’t get their teeth counted. Children stay home because they have teeth that hurt. New Age philosophy holds that tooth pain is a manifestation of fear and the inability to speak to our personal truth. And finally, teeth are used to identify human remains."
