by Grace Girdwain
Although we tend to take them for granted, our hands are vital to our well-being and provide us with unlimited capabilities. Grace Girdwain shares many of the marvelous things hands can do in her second book, With These Hands: For All the Children Around the World.
Using youth-oriented language, Girdwain covers the gamut from using our hands to dress ourselves, brush our teeth, and comb our hair; to drawing, playing games, and writing; to caring for others and praising the Lord.
Coupled with creative black and white line illustrations drawn by the author using her own talented hands, Girdwain’s tapestry of language and art augment this medley on appreciating one’s physical body and capabilities, reminding us there are always hopes and dreams upon which to build.
