Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is a great book for younger children. It is written poetically, with a nice rhythm that will capture the childrens' attention. The story is very inspirational to kids because it shows that they can make a difference. It also expresses the many things one can do with their hands, and how one should be thankful for what they are given. Collier does a great job expressing the young girl's joy and happiness through his beautiful collage illustrations. The illustrations do not always match the pitures exactly, however children will still be able to capture the ideas the author is trying to portray.
These Hands is a simple picture storybook about what a child can do with her hands. This book is appropriate for emergent readers. There is one character and the text is rhythmic and predictable. The colorful illustrations supply additional details of the story and the bright colors used show the excitement and happiness of the main character. The illustrations are fairly detailed for emergent readers, but do show situations that would be familiar to young children. This would be a good choice for a one on one read aloud with a young child.
