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.

In The News

"Hesse’s redheaded narrator begins and ends this book as an unrepentant thumb sucker, but it’s her very intransigence that makes this tribute to the First Digit so refreshing. Even if there are hints that she won’t be a thumb sucker forever (“You make it hard to run,/ and beat a drum,/ and eat a plum”), this is a girl who knows what she wants." - Publishers Weekly
