Beautiful Hands
Little hands can do so many wonderful things: plant ideas, lift spirits, stretch imaginations. This concept book rouses children to use their hands for the good and reach for
their dreams.

How This Book Was Made
You may think you know how this book was made, but you don’t. Sure, the author wrote many drafts, and the illustrator took a long time creating the art, but then what? How’d it get into your hand?
