Title: Mommy’s HandsMommy's Hands
Author: Kathryn Lasky & Jane Kamine
Illustrator: Darcia LaBrosse
Pages: 24
Recommended Ages: Read Aloud
Star Rating: ★★★

This sweet read aloud extols the never-ending, self-denying love mothers have for their children by showing mommies’ hands at work throughout the day – pouring milk for cereal, tying bows in hair, and patting their babies’ faces. As if things couldn’t get more touching, a list is also made of the things mommies proudly watch their children’s hands do – snap their coats on and build sandcastles – as well as the things their hands can do together, like mix cookie dough, plant a garden, and write letters together.


Conclusion. Cute indeed.
