The cute illustrated books are meant to be read often as it teaches children that they need their thumbs to do important tasks like climbing ladders to fight fires or dancing in ballet competitions. The matching thumb puppets come with the book to be worn day or night as a reminder to stop thumb sucking. There is a calendar in the back of the book with stickers to motivate kids to get involved and mark off the days they do not suck their thumb.

STATkids® has developed a line of health identification products designed to identify children by their specific health issues and facilitate the management of an emergency situation. The STATkids® products enable parents to communicate their children’s health concerns and ensure that their teachers and caregivers are equipped to handle them, which is especially important when children are too young or otherwise unable to communicate their needs to others. The number of children with food allergies, Celiac Disease, Asthma, Diabetes, seizure disorders and other health concerns has risen dramatically in recent years and the need for practical, age-appropriate, kid-friendly products to alert others to their needs is critical. The STATkids® line includes specially sized, 100% silicone wristbands; lunch bags and backpacks that display a customizable health ID card; travel packs that carry emergency medication and information, and more. http://www.statkids.com/
