Suddenly there is a funny feeling in my mouth. My tongue instantly finds a gap where a tooth has been. I hope I haven't swallowed it. Where is my tooth?"
I look down. It's on the ground! I pick it up and run to show my parents. My mom is surprised. My dad helps me place it under a calabash gourd behind the bedroom window. I am so proud.
I lost my tooth in Africa! A shiny white tooth! I will have a chicken of my very own. (I Lost My Tooth In Africa)
