Loving hands lift, carry, hold, and give in a tender meditation on the everlasting bond between a parent and a child.

Hands wave hello, hands hold, hands heal. Hands say, I am here for you always. In simple, stirring rhymes, author Tony Johnston pens a timeless ode to parenthood.

 

The small moments and quiet scenes that make up childhood — learning to clap, planting a garden, waving good-bye on the first day of school — fill the pages of this gentle tale, capturing the reassurance and love that parents hand their children every day.

 

Warm illustrations by Amy June Bates show a young boy reaching for his mother’s hand as he grows older and more independent…until, perhaps, he can be the one to offer love and support with hands that say, I am here for you always.

 

An eloquent look at the passage of time and the power of connection and care, this book is a heartfelt gift for loved ones at any and all milestones in life.
