One Hand, Two Hands
Excellent story to read to kids. Lots of fun to watch kids clap, snap, and wave their hands in the air. Also gives a very important message about what are hands are ultimately used for -- praying! Great book by a great author.

A wonderful book for kids to read and enjoy
This book called One Hand, Two Hand by Max Lucado was a rally good book. It was a children's book I received from booksneeze.com. The book had very small words and alot of pictures that made it entertaining and fun to read. I know for sure my niece and newphew will love this book very much. They are 3 and 5 and love to read and play games. This book mentioned a few things kids can do with their hands such as helping to clean my room, feed my pets, set and clear the table and gather the trash. Also mentions how kids have kind hands to make a card for a sick person, give a gift to the teacher at school, help a friend put a band-aid on when they have a scrap on their knee, and sharing my snack.The book also mentions loving hands that kids have to fold them to pray to GOD, clap for someone else, to wave to a friend and hug my mom or dad. This book basically is a way for kids to show their mom and dad how much they appreciate them by helping around the house and the most important thing in the book is how we can pray to GOD to give thanks for the many things around us for having GOD in our lives is so rewarding and blessed and how getting to know GOD is one of the best things we could ever have!

The wonderful things our hands can do
I waited and waited for almost two months and finally this hard cover children storybook arrived safely in my hands. This is the first international parcel DeÃ¢ÂÂLittle Ones received; and this book - One Hand, Two Hands, written by Max Lucado in rhyming text and illustrated with the charming art of Gaby Hansen, has traveled all the way from United States to Malaysia. I told Kylie (my 6 years old daughter) and Kylin (my 3 years old daughter) how far this book has traveled.
Kylin loves this book the most, requesting to sit on my lap and asking me to read the book aloud. She loves the interactive illustrations on every page and she even mimics the girlÃ¢ÂÂs action on the book when I read this:
One here and
As I read along, I showed her all the things we can do with our hands and she followed actively with Kylie and me. At the end of their bedtime story, she requested me to read this book again so that she could have fun performing all the wonderful acts with her hands. She even asked me, Ã¢ÂÂHave you seen God before?Ã¢ÂÂ after reading this -
Ã¢ÂÂ¦we fold them
Before reading aloud to Kylin, Kylie had the honor of reading the book first. She had no problems reading and understanding the contents, with Kylin and me sitting by her bedside. Kylin listened attentively when Kylie read aloud. At the end of the story, I asked Kylie if she loves this book and she said, Ã¢ÂÂI dunno.Ã¢ÂÂ When probed further, Kylie revealed that she prefers a pop-up book. :)
This book is a great book for children and I rate this book 5 out of 5. This book teaches children to be grateful to have hands and how they can show love, help others and be kind to others with their hands.

Great book that teaches good value to the children
After waiting for almost 2 months, finally I received this book on last weekend. The beautiful illustrations straightaway captured the kids' attention and requested me to read for them on that night.
One Hand, Two Hands is written by Max Lucado in rhyming text and illustrated with the charming art of Gaby Hansen. The language is very simple, plus the interactive illustration, it is very easy for the children to understand. It teaches what wonderful things our hands can do from clapping, scratching, latching, squeezing, waving and petting a pup to washing dishes with mommy and putting toys in a box. As I read along, the kids will actively follow along doing all sorts of fun activities using their hands. Besides that, my 2 years old is also attracted by the beautiful and sweet illustration of the book. This is one of the few books that he will sit with me listen to me finish reading the whole book without running around. :)
I like the message of the book - To encourage the children to help others with their hands, and to encourage them to be creative and think about other ways they can use their hands to be helpful. I rate this book 5 out of 5.
