Ideally suited to the board-book format, Here Are My Hands invites very young children to respond spontaneously and creatively as they learn the parts of the body. The rhyming text and bold illustrations do more than name the eyes, ears, nose, and toes. By featuring children of many different backgrounds, the book quietly celebrates the commonality of people around the world.

Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Going to return it!! The first few pages are great, and rhyme nicely. Then the book takes a nose dive. It's almost like the author forgot about the nice rhyming rhythm he had created in the previous pages.
