KIRKUS REVIEW

PLB 0-7868-2320-8 Price pens an ode to the potential in a small child’s hands—hands that can create, fly a kite, hold open the pages of a book; they “sow the seeds for a brighter day.” Lulled by its poetic rhythms, children will appreciate the uplifting message of this text that puts them in charge of their destinies. These hands and the hands of every child who reads this book will undoubtedly shape the future, building relationships and stronger communities. Collier’s bold collage art captures the loving relationship of a family working together and supporting one another throughout the day. The simple, staccato sentences and scenes will work well at story hours, as listeners envision the possibilities of the tender, hopeful narrative. (Picture book. 3-7)
