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.
