    The pictures in this book are simplistic bright and beautiful They captivate the imagination of the reader with each turning of a page The words are simple yet though provoking And the use of hands to create each picture and make the image grow larger is spectacular They make us each take a look at who and what we can each do to change the world What will your beautiful hands do today?I hope to use this book in my classroom as a writing assignment I will be posing this uestion to my students to use as a writing prompt each week Students can study the ideas and pictures presented in the book or come up with their own images to tell me what their hands will do I hope that this will serve as a creative writing assignment for them that they will truly enjoy I can also see this book being used in early elementary school to create think alouds and an opportunity to practice basic writing skills It could also be used in an art class with students creating images to represent the words in the book

    I'm not in the mood to be cynical or judgemental so I'm going to admit this charmed cheered me Yes it's a bit like one of those gimmicky almost saccharine giftable instant classics But not really It's actually uite a bit better than that And it just hit me right at the right time that I needed it If you have a little niece or grandson you could do worse than to put this under their tree this year And if you teach preschool G4 please let us know if you can think of a way to use this in your classroom

    Having young children at home I read MANY MANY children's books and I don't log them all on Goodreads let alone write reviews about them Still when one captures me the way this book did with its simple but warm and meaningful message and beautiful artistry that my kids and I keep staring atwell it is worth the praise Congrats on a beautiful book

    Beautiful Hands is an inspiring and motivating book about how little hands can do many wonderful things All the illustrations are made from finger and hand art There's not much reading but the book is full of uniue illustrations and color I chose this book because I loved the concept of all the illustrations being made just from their hands The genre is fiction and the grade level is pre K K I would use this in a reading classroom by reading this as a read aloud and then having students follow it up with a art lesson
