What kinds of interesting things can a hand do? It can push and pull, draw and walk, and even wave hello or goodbye. In this cute, simple picture book, Satoshi Kitamura invites parents and kids to play along and explore what their hands can do. My Hand has easy words and very basic concepts, but it’ll be lots of fun for very young readers, and it might give parents ideas of some fun ways to play with the littlest members of their family.

“This is my hand. It can do all sorts of things.”

Kitamura’s pictures are very bright and colorful, and kids will love the facial expressions on the cat (even though no one actually wants to encourage pulling on a cat’s tail!). This is a cute book for very young readers; it probably won’t hold the attention of an older toddler or preschooler.
