About This Book
In an affectionate series of tête-à-têtes between three moms and their children, young children describe what their hands and their mothers' hands do when they are together throughout the seasons of the year.
Mommies use their hands to pour cereal, braid hair, mix cookie dough, and show their love. An Asian girl clings to her mother's hand in the rain. A little redhead counts his mom's freckles when his hands pull her close. An African-American boy watches his mom's hands pour milk and never spill a drop.
"An affectionate tribute." — School Library Journal
