With My Hands: Poems About Making Things

(3) K-3 Illustrated by Lou Fancher & Steve Johnson. Twenty-six brief, mostly rhyming, first-person poems celebrate making things with all kinds of media: paint, clay, soap, glitter, socks, leaves, flour, yarn, and more. Every poem invites activity and underscores the pride and satisfaction that's frequently an outcome of creativity. Colorful mixed-media and paper-collage illustrations capture the joyful and often messy process of making "something new / with my hands / my head / my heart."
