Great Kid's Book!

One Hand, Two Hands, Five Fingers, Ten
God, Thanks for my hands, please use them again!

This is an adorable children's book by Max Lucado that shows the you are never to small to be a help and serve others. First it shows all the ordinary ways we use our hands every day and scores big points by using words like "stinky" and "oo-ey goo-ey." Then it shows all the ways that even little kids can use their hands to care for others and be a help from giving hugs to picking up your stinky socks :-)

My son is three years old and enjoys this book. The first day we got it, we probably read it five times in a row. The only thing I wish was different was if they used pictures of boy too, instead of just a girl. He doesn't care too much right now, but my son is starting to enter the stage of "that's for girls" and I wouldn't want him to miss out on such a good lesson because there are only pictures of girls. (Even though they are very cute pictures :-)

I would highly recommend this book though. It's a great and simple way to teach our children about serving others!

Thank you to Thomas Nelson for a free copy of this book to review.
