I was thrilled to have the opportunity to review Max Lucado's book One Hand, Two Hands. I received it in the mail today, and I was immediately struck by the illustrations. I think the artwork is perfect for a children's book, it's bright and interesting and it draws you in.
I really loved this book, and I think it will quickly become a new favorite in our house. I think this book is perfect for preschool to kindergarten age children. I think it would easily fall into the category of an easy reader. The text flows well and the highlighting, or color changes, makes important words really stand out.
The story begins with a description of our hands and proceeds to everyday uses like holding a cup. Then it describes ways they can feel, and how hands can be used to help. Finally it says that we use our hands to pray and includes a sweet but simple prayer.
One of my favorite features is at the end of the book. There are three categories of ways to use your hands: helping; kind; and loving. It’s a cute book with a sweet story, that encourages kids to be kind and helpful!
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as a part of their BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review.
