The Sad Thumb Who Wanted to Become Unplugged
As therapists and parents, we often use images to help us tell stories. Although reading might be difficult for small kids, they easily relate to visual representations. Since its publication, the Sad Thumb has become an important therapeutic tool that easily explains to kids the damages of thumb sucking and other oral habits. Although we want the child to be responsible for his decision to quit, we don’t want him or her to feel guilty or judged. So we put the burden on our little thumb… asking “Thumb” to be the one explaining all the undesirable effects of a negative sucking habit. This edition has been updated with even more appealing pictures and realistic photographs. We proudly present to you the second edition of our Sad Thumb Book. We hope it serves you and your patients and children well.
