BOOK NAME: LITTLE FINGERS
AUTHOR: SHEILA DHIR
ILLUSTRATOR: MUGDHA SETHI
AGE RECOMMENDED: Babies to 3+
Don’t we all love little fingers? From the baby’s first grip to singing finger songs, to doing handprints, we all have memories of them.
This book is all about the memories of how each finger is used and what we can do with each one of them. Each finger has its own personality, and when all the little fingers join in they are fun.
We always tend to say to our kids, you have 10 fingers and ten toes, subconsciously we do many things with our hands. Shadow-making, hand painting, carrying things, scratching a mosquito, and endless things.
When we tend to teach finger names, I found this book helpful.
Thumb finger: we are lost without it, it helps us to hold our favourite fruit together, and also pray for our closest kin in the family.
Index finger: which points very well, it helps me to hold my pencil and pray for the people who teach us.
Middle finger: When it puts on a cap, it makes others small and prays for the authorities of our nation.
Fourth finger: It helps to tap and type and also prays for sick and weak people.
Little finger: It moves with the thumb to get some measuring and pray for yourself.
Together we can make wonders by praying with our hands folded to say goodbye.
