"One Hand, Two Hands", by Max Lucado - Book Review

Max Lucado
One Hand, Two Hands
Oh, the ways we can help with our hands!

This is a wonderful Children's book and it is written by my favorite Christian writer - Max Lucado! This is the first children's book I have read by him, although he has written many. I personally own 13 of his adult books (I didn't even know I had that many till I counted)! What I loved about this book is that it definitely is a book for kids! This is written so even a young child can easily understand it. I can see where a child would want to be read this over and over again till they have it memorized. It has very cute pictures and a nice rhyming little story. At the end it has lists of things you can do with your hands.
Helping hands - clean my room, set the table...
Kind Hands - Share my snack, draw a get well card...
Loving Hands - Hug my mom or Dad, fold them to pray...
I think this book is a great book for discussion. How to use your hands only for good, no mean touching etc.
This book is going into the vault for my future grandchildren!

About the book - A delightful way to show little ones how their hands are a blessing from God that they can use to do help others. Written in rhyming text and illustrated with the charming art of Gaby Hansen, this simple message of God’s blessing of hands not only entertains . . . as it teaches what wonderful things our hands can do from scratching, latching, and petting a pup to washing dishes with mommy and putting toys in a box . . . but it also conveys the important message: We can use God’s gift of hands to show our love for Him by helping others. The book ends tenderly with a prayer of thanks to God for hands and asks Him to use them again:
One hand, two hands,
Five fingers, ten.
God, thanks, for my hands.
Please, use them again.

Thank you Book Sneeze for giving me a complimentary book to review!
