STUDIO 15- This week’s KidLit Pick of the Week is the “Loving Hands by Tony Johnston and Amy June Bates.
This is a lovely picture book that will make a forever keepsake in your library. The book starts with small moments and quiet scenes that make up childhood — learning to clap, planting a garden, waving good-bye on the first day of school. It continues as the young boy character reaching for his mother’s hand as he grows older and then becoming more independent.
As the book ends, he can be the one to offer love and support with hands that say, I am here for you always. An eloquent look at the passage of time and the power of connection and care, this book is a heartfelt gift for loved ones at any and all milestones in life.
