No matter where in the world we live, we meet the challenges of growing up and celebrate our accomplishments...with a little help from family and friends.

I Lost My Tooth in Africa, written by a girl and illustrated by her father, tells the tale of a young girl who loses a tooth while visiting her father’s family in Africa. In the African tradition, she places the tooth under a gourd and in return gets two chickens from the Tooth Fairy.

LeVar explores with youngsters how things have changed for them as they’ve grown, and how taking care of our teeth is part of that process. Then it’s off to attend a Quinceanera -- a celebration for a 15-year-old Hispanic girl in honor of her transition into womanhood.
