Book Review: One Hand, Two Hands

It's a sweet, simple book that will be perfect for Olivia's birthday (a mere eleven days away!).   Bestselling author Max Lucado writes One Hand, Two Hands, which shows that even small children can use their hands to help, love, and show kindness to God and others. 

Adorable illustrations and a catchy rhythm make this picture book fun to read.  And Lucado cleverly transitions from all the fun and silly things we can do with our hands...
Pick flowers, they smell sweet.
Squish cheese, they smell stinky. 
Ooey, pooey,
Right down to your pinky. the ways we can use our hands to serve and love others:
Wash dishes with Mommy. 
Put toys in the box.
Clean this and wipe that.
Even pick up our socks.
And the last page spread lists some specific ways in which children can use their hands to serve.

I know Livvie will love it, and I'll enjoy teaching her this essential life lesson through such a lovely book!
