One Hand, Two Hands

One Hand, Two Hands
by Max Lucado, Illustrated by Gaby Hansen

This is an adorable Children's Book that is sure to be a favorite in any home.  A little girl goes through her day learning of all the ways she can use her hands... from petting a dog and buttoning a button to writing a letter and washing dishes.  The story helps children learn about many of the things they can do with their hands in helpful and kind ways in a fun, bright and rhyming singsong format that appeals to young readers.  Appropriate for ages 3-8, but great for younger and older as well. 

With a discussion section in the back of this book and a list of suggested things children can do with their hands, this book becomes more than just a quick story.  The illustrations are engaging and colorful, with softer colors and engaging tones.  Words are in varied fonts, drawing eyes to different places on the page.
With a final suggestion that hands are used for praying, this book shows it spiritual message, yet is not overtly religious and is appropriate for all children.  Highly recommended to all families with young children, this book is easy to read, fun to look at and has a great teaching message in a fun format.
