Synopsis

My Thumb by Karen Hesse

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. Parents worry themselves silly over thumb sucking, but really, what's the big deal? It's tasty. lt's comforting. It gets a little soggy. But so what? As paediatricians say, as long as kids aren't sucking their thumbs when they go to college, it's all good. So let's listen to Karen Hesse and let them enjoy their thumbs.
