Product Reviewers Recommend Thumbuddy Books and Music for Increasing Kid’s Self Esteem

The positive and affirming words in Thumbuddy children’s books and music have product reviewers recommending them to parents and preschool educators.

Burnsville, MN, June 17, 2009 --( Noted for instilling self worth and building self esteem in children through their Thumbuddy children’s book and music series, ThumbPeople, Inc. continues to spread the message to kids that, “You Are Thumbuddy!”

Founder of ThumbPeople, Mark Arens, says, “What makes Thumbuddy books unique is that instead of reading a story to your child, you are reading about your child and affirming that they are special, beautiful, loveable, etc. Story time is transformed into a nurturing time between parent and child where the child is encouraged and self worth is instilled through positive, life giving words.”

As a product review on states: “… With so much trash out there for kids, it is especially refreshing to see something that is not only kid-friendly and mom-approved, but really emphasizes the unique qualities of every child and the unconditional love between parent and child. The books are precious and sentimental … I highly recommend all of the Thumbuddy titles… After all, there is no greater gift than quality time spent with your child.”

ThumbPeople has also released its Thumbuddy Club preschool curriculum which utilizes the Thumbuddy children’s book series and the You Are Thumbuddy children’s music. Thumbuddy Club was designed and field tested by preschool curriculum experts and is available in both Christian and secular versions.

The Thumbuddy character communicates the message to children that just like their thumb leaves a unique, one-of-a-kind thumbprint, they are one-of-a-kind and their life leaves a unique imprint in the world and just as their thumb stands out from their fingers, they were meant to stand out and live outstanding lives.
