It’s Official! Dr. Anthony Fauci of the White House Corona Task Force says The Tooth Fairy Can Still Come and Won’t Get Covid-19; So Please Read Peter Collington’s Wordless Picture Book Called “The Tooth Fairy.”
Dr. Anthony Fauci, of the White House corona virus task force and Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, amid the Covid-19 pandemic has fielded questions from young ones in order to allay their fears about certain things concerning the virus.
And it’s a window into what is REALLY worrying young ones of picture book age.
Ava of Los Angeles who is seven asked Dr. Fauci:
Can the Tooth Fairy still come if I lose my tooth ’cause of the corona virus and can she catch the corona virus?”
Dr. Fauci had an appearance on Will Smith’s “Will from Home” Snapchat show.
Here is Dr. Fauci’s sweet response to Ava’s fears:
“I gotta tell you Ava, I don’t think you need to worry about the Tooth Fairy,” said the 79 years young Dr. Fauci.
So when your tooth falls out, you stick it under the pillow and I’ll guarantee you that the Tooth Fairy is not going to get infected and is not going to get sick.”
He was not sugar coating things for young children who ultimately respect honesty, when he said in answer to another question:
It’s tough now, and it may be tough for another year – but this is something that will go away. I promise you.
And so the Tooth Fairy issue resolved, I refer you to Peter Collington’s wordless picture book on said fairy called, “The Tooth Fairy.”
It’s a book that will allow Dr. Fauci’s medical opinions to be verified in picture book form and allow your young reader to put forth questions and concerns of their own about her wanderings.
Good job, Dr. Fauci!
I see questions on Santa looming ahead.
