by Judy Boehm
Sometimes things are not always what they seem, like babies who drive spaceships. SPACEBABIES is a fun, out-of-this world story for the young at heart. When the babies from space land on Earth, playtime for Henry and Veronica is interrupted. The babies and children become fast-friends.
The sharing of thumbs illustrated in the book refers to the Christian belief that the thumb is the most instrumental of the fingers in bestowing blessings. Like the Spacebabies, many have professed an excited, or spiritual feeling when thumbs are touched. You can try this easily yourself, as you read Spacebabies with a friend.
