School Library Journal - 06/01/2016 Toddler-PreS—This ode to delightfully dimpled hands is the stuff laptime snuggles are made of. A simple rhyming text describes toddlers' hands as little ones play, wait for treats, eat, and clean up. The fresh, child-friendly illustrations are spot-on. Adults will appreciate the easy to read verses like "One last bite, then arms up high!/Wash two hands and pat them dry." Little listeners will be comforted by the familiar scenarios and are sure to recognize themselves in the group of diverse faces. The simple finger-counting framework facilitates learning numbers without detracting from the appeal. VERDICT A solid choice. Purchase this hardcover edition, or wait for the board book so it can be zealously enjoyed by two small hands.—Jenna Boles, Greene County Public Library, Beavercreek, OH - Copyright 2016 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
