Recommends it for: Pre-K body hands values character empowerment me myself
All the positive things A to Z that a child has the power to do with their hands. Also good for "Me" storytimes or "head to toe" storytimes.

This is a very cute book! Its an alphabet book about all of the things little hands can do. Very good book for teaching young children the alphabet.
