Award-winning illustrator Rafael López brings new life with his adaptation of "He's Got the Whole World in His Hands" saluting the lives of all young people. The rhythmic verse and repetitive emphasis on "we" and "our" encourages inclusive communities and the celebration of unity and diverse friendships all around the world.



"We've got you and you got me in our hands.

We have the whole world in our hands."



Come and read along and sing along as we celebrate the magic of unity. From the rivers to the mountains to the oceans and to the sea,we've got the whole world in our hands.



As an added bonus, the sheet music is included in the back of the book for piano, guitar, and recorder, for classroom, library, and home sing-alongs.
