This book shows how we use our hands in the real world. The photographs show hands doing a single job two ways - one with fingers only and the other with an object. Examples are eating with fingers and chopsticks, catching a butterfly with fingers and a butterfly net, piling up shavings and a dustpan, a hand fan and a real fan, hand measuring and a yardstick, and sand writing and paper writing. The book ends with an affectionate holding hands photograph. The text is rhyming and special to young readers. The endpapers show many uses of hands from many races. 48 pages Ages 4-8
