If you have had the pleasure of making a small human at some point over the past 45 years, then you are probably acquainted with Hand, Hand, Fingers, Thumb by Al Perkins, the fantastic and poetic, beat-inspired book.

My son Henry has definitely chosen it as his favourite of the hundred or so books that we’ve read to him since he was born. We are currently on our third copy — the first two having been destroyed by adoration, drool and tiny fingers.

Naively, I thought we were the only ones who loved this book so much.

Here’s Cory Doctorow with his paean to the book, inspired by his daughter Poesy.

And there are tribute videos to this book all over YouTube! Strange, Grandpa-directed, horribly-shot tribute videos. I can’t get enough.

These are some of my favourites.

Just be sure to tell your kids that this guy ^ isn’t their Grandpa.
