This inviting offering provides youngsters with an almost sensory experience in which they can appreciate how their hands help them to explore and interact with their world.

In HANDS CAN by Cheryl Villis Hudson, photos by John-Francis Bourke, a simple rhyming text and crisp photos of toddlers depict a number of activities to inspire youngsters to discover the world with their own hands.
The book’s loose structure, open-ended topic, and eye-catching photos leave plenty of space for conversation between young children and those who read aloud to them, a real plus in books for the very young.
The preschoolers portrayed are young enough that their motions are still not self-conscious and are chubbily short of precision, gently touching all they meet, readers included.
Children are sure to reach for this book again and again.
