"He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands" by Kadir Nelson

This book is so cute! It features a boy and his family with the lyrics of the old spiritual turned into a picture book. After a few pages we were singing along to the words of the song, “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands.” The kids had a blast trying to figure out what the next lyrics were based on the pictures, which, by the way, are awesome.

    Selena and I loved this book. Selena learned the song quickly and sang it every night for a week.

    I LOVE this book. I run a daycare and I check many books out from the library. I only buy favorites. This is a favorite. I am captivated by the pictures.
