One Hand, Two Hands Written by Max Lucado, Illustrated by Gaby Hansen Book Review

Max Lucado, a minister and writer, delights children yet again with his latest children's book One Hand, Two Hands.  A little girl learns all about just what her hands can do in this beautifully illustrated book.

The colorful illustrations depict a little girl and her animal friends as they go about their day.  While waving her arms in the air, washing a canine friend, making mud pies, helping with chores, and even saying her prayers, the little girl learns a valuable lesson.  Lucado teaches children this lesson through rhyms that will draw in even the youngest readers.

This book is a wonderful way to open up a dialogue with children about how our hands can be used for good but also how they can be used to hurt others.

One Hand, Two Hands which ends with a short prayer will make a perfect bed time story to end the day for my two little ones.  

I received a complimentary copy of this book  from the publisher through BookSneeze. The opinions I have expressed are my own.  No other compensation has been or will be recieved.
