Hands Can


Hands Can Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hands can do all kinds of things! A rhyming text with eye-catching color photos offers just the encouragement young children need to explore their world - hands on.

Hands can hold things.

Hands can mold things.

Hands can catch

and hands can throw.

Hands can do much more, of course - wave hello and goodbye, play peekaboo, touch things, clap, even tie a shoe. For the very young, hands are a never-ending source of discovery and a means of mastery in an ever-unfolding world. With singsong rhythm, simple design, and alluring color photos of toddlers, HANDS CAN invites the littlest readers to discover the many things hands can do.

About the Author

Cheryl Willis Hudson is the author of a dozen books for children, including BRIGHT EYES, BROWN SKIN (coauthored with Bernette G. Ford) and COME BY HERE, LORD: EVERYDAY PRAYERS FOR CHILDREN. She says that HANDS CAN was inspired by her own children. "I was amazed by the versatility, dexterity, utility, and even gracefulness of such small fingers," she says. "I began to see hands as marvelous works of art, and I wanted to somehow capture that vision in a childrens book."

John-Francis Bourke was born in Dublin, Ireland, and now works in New York City. His photographs have been published in GQ, TV GUIDE, ESPN THE MAGAZINE, NICK JR., PARENTING, and PARENTS. He says, "Photographing people provides me with a constant stream of new faces, new words, new conversation - it never gets old. Photographing children gives you all that, plus innocence and curiosity. Wonderful!" This is his first book for children.
