What I Like: This is a great cuddle-up story, especially if the parent replaces “Thumbuddy” with the child’s name.
What I Dislike: The illustrations were a bit too cartoonish and caricature-like for my taste. The thumb faces had positive adjectives written on them, such as "blessing," "loving," and "precious." Some words were written on the mother Thumbuddy, making it unclear to me if the writer meant to build up both the child and the parent.
Age Appeal: Infant to age four.
