Max Lucado’s One Hand, Two Hands engages tiny children, say, up to age 4 or 5. The children will be counting their fingers, clapping their hands, squeezing, flopping, waving, and all sorts of fun activities for those youngsters. We read this to our kids and they like to actively follow along.
But the kicker for this book is toward the end where the kids are encouraged to help others with their hands, to use them for doing things around the house, and to encourage them to be creative and think about other ways they can use their hands to be helpful.
It’s a good, simple book with fun illustrations. There is a very helpful focus that any parent could use. We think this book would server better as a board book as opposed to the 10″ x 9″ nice hardcover it is now. It will last longer. My kids kept wanting to flip through the pages, using their hands of course as encourage. That tends to shorten the life of books, if you know what I mean.
