Three young children describe many of the things they love that their mommy's hands do. Very, very sweet :-)

I would use this to help the children see that children and parents from different races/nationalities all love the same way. ( )

Ages 3-5. A tender and affectionate series of tete-a-tetes between three moms and their children. «I love my mommy's hands,» says an Asian girl, who clings to her mother's hand in the rain. A little redhead loves to count 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. The activities are those of daily life: making frost pictures on the windows in winter, planting radishes in the spring, gazing at the constellations on a summer night. The pictures are done in sweet pastel colors without being cloying. The gentlest of lines define facial features and hair--wavy, curly--and the hands of both mothers and children are as expressive as dance and as lovely as flowers.
