    In Catalunya it is: “Angelet de les Dents” (Little Tooth Angel). Though I have heard: “Fada de les Dents” (Tooth Fairy) However, that might be a derivative from Disney.

    I think I like the idea of a fairy better. I’m not a fan of rodents! ;)

    I cried when I was 7 and lost one of my teeth because I literally “lost” the tooth and thought the tooth fairy wouldn’t come!

    Ugh, teeth gross me out, and having to wrap up my small students’ teeth in paper and label it for the rat grossed me out the most. It’s a funny little story…but also super creepy to think of his tooth village. Ughhh.

    Oh God! I could do it for my own child, or a younger sibling… but not someone else’s kids. You’re a very giving teacher Cat ;) xx

    With three boys in our household, RP has been a regular visitor to Casa Hirtes. And he’s generous to boot too. Leaving both sweets and money.

    It’s a viscous circle, Elle.

    I love reading fairy tales from other countries. I think it gives the reader unique insights in to the culture. Thanks for sharing!

    The tooth . . . mouse? Oh well, he sounds like a savvy little guy.

    Ratoncito is without the accent. ;)

    You’re absolutely correct. It is only Ratón that has the accent. Cheers for flagging it and I shall change it now.

    My 8 year old daughter chose this as something to share about Spain as she is celebrating International Childrens day on 10/31. She feels it is an important thing about Spain that second graders would like to know.
    Thank you.
