Gr 5-7 The Silversteins do an excellent job of presenting facts in a fascinating manner. After a chapter comparing human hands to animal hands, two chapters present the anatomical story from the outside to the inside. Both chapters are quite detailed and are nicely illustrated with labeled black-and-white drawings. Sections on palmistry and fingerprints add variety. Other chapters explore left-handedness and sign language. Gilda and Melvin Berger's The Whole World of Hands (Houghton, 1982) covers most of the same information in not quite as much detail but in a more appealing way for younger children. Ruth Goode's Hands Up! (Macmillan, 1983) also does an excellent job with the same topic. Both of these, unlike the Silversteins' book, offer good bibliographies. Libraries with those two books might not need another ``hand'' book. The major difference in The Story of Your Hand is in the amount of detail contained in its anatomical sections. Judith L.
