What's My Thumb About

Publisher Summary

I love my thumb, I truly do, it tastes of pears and carrot stew. It’s like a hug, an “I love you.” My mom hoped in a year or two there’d be some things that I outgrew, and some I have, but never you. Kids who suck their thumbs know there’s nothing better. NOTHING! Here is a fun picture book ode to the thumb by Newbery Medalist Karen Hesse, with art by Feiwel and Friends Creative Director Rich Deas.

Human Development Degree, Book-loving aunt

Through the first half of the book, the story talks about all of the things you can’t do while sucking your thumb. This made me think it would be a great book for littles who need to break the habit, but by the end, it just goes back to how much she loves sucking her thumb and couldn’t live without it.
