One Hand, Two Hands by Max Lucado
I was very excited to hear that Max Lucado had a new children's book out One Hand, Two Hands: Oh, the ways we can help with our hands!, illustrated by Gaby Hansen. We are fans of Lucado's children's books and this one did not disappoint. It's a simple story focused on what little hands can do and how they can help. It encourages little ones to be thankful for their hands and to use them in many useful ways. The story has simple rhyming text that tells how hands can play and work throughout the day. The text is accompanied by equally sweet, colorful, full page illustrations. It's a great read that looks at teachable moments of everyday activities. My favorite feature is the practicable application suggestions in the back of the book on how little hands can be; helping hands, kind hands, and loving hands. It's a great starting point for further discussion on how we can use our hands for God and others.
I received a free copy of this book through Thomas Nelson Publishing’s Book Sneeze book review program. The opinions expressed in this review are my own and I was not required to provide a positive review.
