    1. I absolutely loved this book with its sweet message and beautiful illustrations. It talks about a girl and how she see's her father work with his hands outside. He brings her sweet treasures hidden in his hands, and she loves to spend time with her dad. I would use this to talk about the outdoors.


    2. Genre: Children's Picture Book (MAISA Mentor Text)Unique feature: The water colors used in the text give a sense of feeling to the pages This would be a good book for action words and incorporating thought and feeling into our writing.Grade level suggested 1-2


    3. I was hoping for rather a broader view of a father's hands. This one is limited to what a father shows his daughter in the garden. It is a bit lovely, but it is also a bit boring.


    4. A daughter helps and watches her father in their garden. She watches his hands as they dig up the soil in the earth, and then she sees that her father has something in his hands. Her father shows her a pink worm, a gold-armored beetle, a snail that slides over the dark cracks in her father's hands, and a leaf-green mantis. She is fascinated by the insects, and knows that nothing that comes from her father's hands will harm her. I liked this book! I like the quote on the last page that reads, "No [...]


    5. The oils on paper produce very capable, warm illustrations, but the strength of this book is Ryder's loving verse that captures the physicality, strength, trust and generosity of the father's hands for his daughter. Sharing his love for the earth and introducing nature's treasures to her, the book's greatest surprise for me was his bringing her to a praying mantis. Mantises had a special place in our family when our children were young - this Fall the mantises are back, one outside our home, and [...]


    6. Self-to –World Connection or Text-to-TeachingI enjoyed reading this book. I like how the father does anything to make his daughter happy. They have a really good bond. He has a love for the outside world. He connects his love with nature and applies it to teaching his daughter as well. This story I could use as a Science Lesson on plants and animals. After reading the story, I can point out to the kids the different types of animals that were in the story. We could do a sorting game as a whole [...]


    7. I liked this book! It is a cute story, and the illustrations are life-like. The cover of the book is especially adorable because the father is holding his daughter's hands in his, while the daughter is holding the snail that he showed her in the story. This could be uses in a classroom because many children love to help their parents with chores and what not. This book is relatable for children because they most likely know what it's like to help their father in a garden, or other places.


    8. I really enjoyed this quiet story of a father who is a gardener who finds occupants of the garden and shares them with his daughter.I had some older children for PJ storytime and used this as a quiet story to end our PJ storytime. 6/12/12Used for a kindergarten class visit. Started them out with this quiet story since the teacher doesn't like them to get to riled.


    9. This book would be good to read to students. It has nice, warm pictures that illustrate how a father cares for the Earth and shares that love with his daughter. The language used is appropriate in that it teaches children to think. It shows how this father is teaching his daughter to not be afraid of the animals in the garden, but to learn about them.


    10. This is a sweet book about the relationship between a father and daughter and the time they spend together in the garden. The illustrations are softly rendered and our girls loved the pictures of the praying mantis and other creatures. It's a fun story to read aloud at bedtime.


    11. Age: 3 years - 1st gradeA simple tale commemorating the wonders that can come from father's hands as he gardens. Great for overcoming fear of bugs and the unknown.



    12. My Father's HandsRyder, JoanneThis book is looking at the surprises in nature shared between daughter and father, he showed her the world of wonder in his hands from a worm, to a praying mantis.


    13. My father loves this story and uses it annually to teach some aspect of poetry, but I just enjoy its simple beauty and wonderful phrasing.


    14. Nice story. Can be read around Father's Day or when starting an expedition with plants and the animals/insects that live with/near/in and help the plants.
