If your hands can mix and mash, what job might you have? What if your hands reach, wrench, yank, and crank? The hands in this book--and the people attached to them--do all sorts of helpful work. And together, these helpers make their community a safe and fun place to live. As you read, keep an eye out for community members who make repeat appearances! Can you guess all the jobs based on the actions of these busy hands?

This book is filled with charming rhymes about adult occupations. However, the rhyme about police officers is absolutely tasteless!

"Stop and go, these hands are waving.
Catch that guy! He's misbehaving!
These hands help us keep the peace.
Hold yours up, it's the...police!"

That's a hard no from me. If I owned this book, I would tear this page out!

Provides an interesting and fun way to introduce preschoolers to adult occupations. Lots of ways to engage children about "what they want to be when they grow up."
