One Hand, Two Hands by Max Lucado

Hello friends! :)

I am excited for today's Book Review! I was asked by
Thomas Nelson Publishers to review Max Lucado's children's book, One Hand, Two Hands. I thought to myself, "Sure, I could give it a try. I like Max's writings." I was very pleasantly surprised! :)

(Side note: You should know, not everything that I review I recommend. If I don't give it two absolute thumbs up, I don't pass it along).

When Max's new book arrived, I was intrigued by the fun cover and the book's subtitle: "Oh the Ways We Can Work with Our Hands". As a former Children's Minstry Director and current Mom of 4, I love checking out resources for kids (especially ones with a good message).

Trust me, I was not disappointed!

Mom's and Dad's, you will enjoy this book with your ! It's classic Max Lucado ~ brilliant, easy to read but very insightful. It would be a great gift for preschool age children (younger children would enjoy the message, but it's not a board book, so beware.) The encouraging message and beautiful illustrations are wonderful!

Here's more about this fun book...

"One Hand, Two Hands is a delightful way to show little ones how their hands are a blessing from God that they can use to do help others.

Written in rhyming text and illustrated with the charming art of Gaby Hansen, this simple message of God's blessing of hands not only entertains . . . as it teaches what wonderful things our hands can do from scratching, latching, and petting a pup to washing dishes with mommy and putting toys in a box . . .

But it also conveys the important message: We can use God's gift of hands to show our love for Him by helping others. The book ends tenderly with a prayer of thanks to God for hands and asks Him to use them again"

There is also a wonderfully illustrated name plate page in the front of the book, so if you're thinking Christmas already for a special preschooler, it is definitely a book you could add to your list!

How about for you?? What is one of your favorite children's books? I'd love to hear from you!

Thanks for stopping by * She Sparkles*! God's richest blessings to you! :)
