Product description

By the CBC-award-winning illustrator of "Where is the Green Sheep?" My hands pick up things - a doll, a truck, the biscuit tin. My hands hold on to things, like other hands, to make a ring. They help me dance, and help me swing. They rub my eyes, they tuck me in. My hands pick up things...These are my hands. This is a gorgeous sequel to "These Are My Feet". A universally appealing, age-appropriate text, fun to read aloud and pitched perfectly at young children who are discovering the world around them. Educational potential - Perfectly pitched at an audience coming to grips with basic concepts and relationships, in this case learning to explore the world and all the things in it with their hands. Themes include texture, toys and play, routine, bedtime and friends. The illustrations are clear, and the bright bold blocks of color make this appropriate for even the youngest child.
