One Hand, Two Hands By Max Lucado

Finally my second book from BookSneeze had arrived.   The author of this book is Max Lucado and it is illustrated by Gaby Hansen.  This is a charming children book with cheery and colorful illustrations, which teaches children many ways of using their hand in their daily activities to express their helpfulness, kindness and loving nature.

I am really excited to receive this book, as I ordered it specifically for Iggy.  Although he is too young to appreciate the book, he shows excitement upon seeing the new book and he also enjoys flipping through the book.  I, personally, like the illustrations.  It is cheery and colorful and most of all its gives a warm and happy feeling to the reader.

However, I prefer the book without its book jacket.  For Iggy, the book jacket actually gets in the way when he try to flip open the book.  I think it is only a matter of time before he accidentally tear it in his attempts to flip the book open.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 :“Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”

  1. Hello!

    Sounds like a nice book and I cant wait to receive mine🙂

    Thank you for dropping by at my blog and see you again soon.

    Happy weekend!

  2. I don’t like books with flaps too (I’ve just found out they are called the French flaps during one of my recent book reviews), ended up salotaping it to the covers😛

    I’m so jealous you got yours already! Arghhhhh!!! 😀

  3. Hi Catheryn,

    Thanks for dropping by. Actually, I’ve been dropping by your blog for a while now. Just I’m a lazy blogger as well as lazy commenter ..😛

    Hi Jenny,

    Thanks for dropping by. Btw, french flaps are different than book jacket, which aka dust jacket.

    French flaps are simply extensions of the paperback cover that fold inside the book.

    The dust jacket is made from paper with two flaps that fit over the front and back covers, wrapping around the spine to encase the entire cover. The jacket is normally detachable and is typically covered with acetate, a clear, thin, plastic-like material that increases longevity.

    Should I make you more jealous .. I received another book from BookSneeze last week😛
