What Does Bookroo Think of Hand in Hand

“Short and sweet rhymes show the heartwarming love between a parent and child.”

A mother and her daughter enjoy a day of fun on an outing to the park, with smooth, rhyming text that conveys multitudes of feeling and activity for such a limited number of words per page. With only a few short words on each page rather than complete sentences, only the most important vocabulary accompanies the illustrations. Verbs are packed throughout the book and paired with snippets of playful illustration to tell the lovely story of a mother and daughter’s meaningful day together, such as “Tickle / Giggle / Hug / Hold.” Thoughtfully written to evoke the emotion that every parent and child can instinctively understand, the sweet, contented love of such relationships shines through in a day spent together, “Me / You / We, two . . . ” The warm but cheerful illustrations feel as sweet as the story, providing an extra boost of heartwarming delight in this valued addition to children’s books about parental love. The book is a reminder of how the incomparable love between a parent and child turns what seems like an ordinary visit to the park into extraordinary moments, memories, and feelings that will remain treasured in hearts forever.
