A sweet and fun remedy for young readers reluctant to give up their best thumb. Jake is an expert at doing things with his best thumb. He can walk the dog, watch TV, even ride his bike. Jake and his thumb are happy together until kindergarten begins and the class bully teases Jake, calling him "thumb sucker." Jake doesn't want to give up his habit, but with some help from a new classmate and the realization that everyone - even bullies - sometimes need a little extra help to feel brave, Jake might finally be ready to try. Quirky illustrations and a charming story will have readers cheering for winsome Jake and his best thumb.
