One Hand, Two Hands, by Max Lucado

"One Hand, Two Hands," by Max Lucado is a wonderful addition to any child's library. As only the preacher/author Max Lucado can do, this book not only introduces your child to their hands but also has application points for children of all ages. Lucado seamlessly transitions from hand introductions, to things a child does with their hands, to what their hands can do for others such as pick flowers, wipe tears, wash dishes, or pick up toys.

The reader will realize the concept seems a bit simplistic but even adults need a small reminder of things they can easily do for others. The best part of this children’s book is the list of practical tasks your child can do with their hands and the statement Lucado is poses to children and adults alike, “Think of ways your hands can be helping hands.”

Visually speaking, this book is great for kids. There are happy images on every page and even the page that suggests using hands to wipe tears shows a happy little girl hugging an elderly woman. The book was delivered with a dust jacket that, more than likely, will be removed for its own protection.

Thank you to Thomas Nelson publishing for providing a complimentary copy of this book for review purposes.
