Thumb Thumb Books

Words and pictures tell simple stories, sometimes with unexpected twists, featuring Thumb Thumb Thambi and Thumb Thumb Thangi and their world of thumbprints. The books use words from a child's rich and spontaneous vocabulary rather than the formal, graded one. At the end of the story, children are encouraged to make drawings using their own thumbprints and feel at home in the pages of the book. Every book carries on the last page the line, 'I can read this book.' Each time a child reads this out aloud, it reaffirms the young reader's place in the world of books. Thumb Thumb Books offer a dynamic creative space in which to learn to read.
