This books speaks to how we show love -with our hearts and hands. Loved this!

SUMMARY: This books talks about the many uses of hands and how those uses translate into love. One page reads: "Hands that pull a splinter out. Hands that hold when you are in doubt." The first and last page say, "Hands that do all they can do are also saying, "I love you."

ILLUSTRATIONS: The illustrations were created using a mix of linoleum block printing, pencil, and digital work. They are soft, colorful, and very friendly. There are plenty of details without being over loaded visually. The font is nice and large.

REVIEW: I love how this book translates the things we do for others--such as cleaning, helping, playing, and loving touch--all into love. When big sister poors milk for little sister, she is showing love. When the family gets together for a birthday celebration, they are showing love. I especially enjoyed the scene on the last page when all the children are asleep and mom and dad go sit on the porch just to be close and watch the moon. A+ for multicultural characters as well. This book teaches us something that many families have forgotten-- in everything we can do, we can show love.

AGE RECOMMENDATION: Advertised for ages preschool and kindergarten, but I think ages 3-6 would enjoy. This would make a nice early reader as well because of the simple language.
