Hand, Hand, Fingers, Thumb

A madcap group of monkeys teaches early learners about the wonders of their hands, their fingers, and their thumbs. Hand, Hand, Fingers, Thumb, written by Al Perkins and illustrated by Eric Gurney, is one of several Bright and Early Books in the Dr. Seuss™ & His Friends book club that helps parents teach their children about specific body parts.

Tie-in Activity: Here’s an easy parent-child keepsake: Use non-toxic poster paints to paint your hand, then make a handprint on a sheet of construction paper and let it dry. Paint your child’s hand in a different color, then add it next to (or nested in) your print. (Note: footprints often work better for infants.) Date, sign, and decorate as you like!
