A little book that will delight kids and their parents, too!   Little Thumb Thumb Thambi sees a pretty flower but danger lurks amongst its petals – A bee!

This tale is sure to amuse a child with the sudden turn of events. Part of the series of Thumb Thumb Books the child will find the little book easy to read and handle.

Well designed with minimal text, large font size and a strong colour palette are an added plus point.

The simple illustrations made with thumbprints are both engaging and endearing. Bound to encourage children to try their hands or rather thumbs at it, too!

In this day and age where people lavish expensive toys and games on kids, kudos to Tulika Books for bringing out books that reiterate that all one needs is some creativity and imagination on the part of parents and teachers (and maybe some paint too) to keep kids busy learning and playing.
