Written in Spanish for Spanish-speaking children, this is a translation of Barron's English language book, "Left Hand, Right Hand." Most of the time, we take our hands for granted, but this unusual book gives younger children an opportunity to ponder their hands, understand how to use them, and learn to tell left from right. They learn how their thumbs make picking up objects an easy task. The book's unique design consists of eight board pages on its left-hand side and eight more on its right-hand side. Pages are die-cut to match the general shape of hands. They explain the many uses of hands in simple Spanish words and attractive color illustrations.
