Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
K-Gr 3 This book, modeled after similar books on toilet training, is aimed both at thumbsucking youngsters and their parents to offer them information and a plan of action. Color photos show a five- or six-year-old boy as he and his parents approach the problem in a very positive manner. Rather than his parents forcing him, he is allowed to come to his own decision, in his own time frame. The rest of the book presents to parents information on why children develop this habit and the consequences at different stages of development from birth to school age. Then suggestions based on behavior modification are made. It is stressed that there is no one correct way to solve the problem and that there may be setbacks. Given the thorough information and the positive manner in which it is presented, this book will be well utilized in homes, libraries, preschools and daycare centers.
