Award-winning illustrator Rafael López brings new life with his adaptation of "He's Got the Whole World in His Hands," saluting the lives of all young people. The rhythmic verse and repetitive emphasis on "we" and "our" encourages inclusive communities and the celebration of unity and diverse friendships all around the world.

"We've got you and you got me in our hands. We have the whole world in our hands."

Come and read along and sing along as we celebrate the magic of unity. From the rivers to the mountains to the oceans and to the sea -- we've got the whole world in our hands.

As an added bonus the sheet music is included in the back of the book for piano, guitar, and recorder for classroom, library, and home sing-alongs.--from the publisher

This is a gorgeous, glorious celebration of the astonishing diversity of our world. Following a ball of yarn as it unrolls its string and finds its way around our globe, we discover together the wondrous wildlife, the vivid cultures, and the one place we all call home.

The yarn connects us all as it takes us on our global adventure. The song will play in your head as you turn the pages and you are left with the feeling that we can do this. We can honor each other and the natural world that cradles us. We can feel the things that we share and we can appreciate the differences that make our world so phenomenal. A gorgeous book.
