Author Showcase: A place for authors and illustrators to gain visibility for their works.*
Every word in the Thumbuddy book series is a delicious raindrop meant to grow your child’s self worth!
Written to strengthen the parent-child bond, author, Mark Arens, asks readers to replace Thumbuddy’s name with their child’s name while reading. The books are then transformed as is your child’s self image as they are told they are lovable, special, huggable, etc.
The endearing thumbprint character, Thumbuddy, conveys the message that just like your thumb stands out from your fingers, you were meant to stand out and be outstanding! And, just like your thumb has a one-of-a-kind thumbprint, you are a one-of-a-kind miracle!
The whimsy of watercolor artwork, gentle rhythm of positive affirming text and a “find the hidden butterfly game” on each page is consistent throughout all seven books.
Books one through four, Thumbuddy You, Thumbuddy Special, Thumbuddy, Thumbuddy, I Love You! and Thumbuddy, Thumbuddy, Oh, What You Do! are all board books that affirm the positive qualities within your preschool child.
Books five through seven, I’ll Always Love My Thumbuddy, Thumbuddy Goes To School and You Are Thumbuddy are big hard cover books that affirm your unconditional love for your child and encourage your preschool through early elementary school child to use their wonderful qualities and make positive choices.
Book seven, You Are Thumbuddy, comes with the positive and bubbly music CD that encourages kids with songs such as, You Make a Difference, You Are One-Of-A-Kind, and Forever You’ll Be Loved By Me.
