Description

This charming rhyming book celebrates God’s good design for our hands, motivating children aged 3+ to use their hands to glorify God.  

Children will be inspired by all the creative and interesting things their hands can do—they can even use them to bring comfort and joy to others! They’ll discover that Jesus had hands just like ours and that he always used his hands in the most amazing ways, including to save us. 

Not only that: the way that Jesus used his hands means that we can be forgiven when we use our hands in the wrong way. Children are invited to pray for forgiveness when they make mistakes, and for help to use their hands in the ways God intends. The book’s fun rhyming style and colourful illustrations make it easy to engage with this life-altering message of repentance, forgiveness, and grace-fuelled obedience. 

Your Amazing Hands is part of the Training Young Hearts series, which consists of board books for toddlers as well as rhyming books for children over 3. All the books in the series train young hearts through the gospel, both by showing Jesus as an example and by explaining how his grace enables us to change. Parents, teachers and other loved ones can refer back to these resources when specific behaviours need to be both corrected and connected to forgiveness, grace and growth.

J.D. Greear is the pastor at The Summit Church

A delightfully creative and insightful book that teaches our kids that Christianity is not just about behavior change, but heart change, too.


Jane Watkins

Director of Mentoring, Growing Young Disciples

Simplifying biblical truth for children takes a lot of hard work, and Abbey has done it creatively, faithfully, and accessibly. Your Amazing Hands will help children to see the wonderful gospel story—and help parents to see gospel opportunities in everyday situations.


Caroline Saunders

Author, The Story of Water and The Story of Home

I adore how Abbey has brought her distinctive, gospel-centered encouragement and equipping to this series! Your Amazing Hands is a fun, engaging read that kids and caregivers will reach for often. They’ll find themselves slowly shaped to use their hands in a way that esteems the way Christ used his hands—to save us and bring us to himself.

“Gospel-centered book that would be a great addition to any children's library.”

Delightful and diverse illustrations with easy rhymes for kids to learn about all the good things God has created our hands to do, those things we ought not to do, and bringing it home to the most important thing - what Jesus has done for us. The focus on heart change over behavior change is something I think is important to discuss with kids and also greatly lacking in children’s literature. This is a great addition to the “Training Young Hearts” series and I love to see more gospel-centered books on the market for children.

“Makes pointing to the gospel easy”

This book has beautiful illustrations as it teaches kids to apply the Gospel to the use of their hands. The fun rhyming structure makes it a book both parents and children will enjoy reading again and again. It also gives parents a reference point to use in daily discipleship moments when conflicts arise outside of reading the book. We love this series!

“You NEED this in your library”

I think this series is a MUST have for Christian home libraries. What a beautiful way to help teach our children how God made them and how they can live a holy life. Plus the illustrations are darling and diverse and so fun.

“A powerful message in a simple and easy to understand little book!”

A perfect, delightful addition to our daughter’s bookshelf! I adore this book and can’t recommend it enough! Easily geared towards toddler or Kindergartner alike, this book appeals to children with gentle, rhyming words and vibrant, fun illustrations. I love the size and square format for our shelves (we have the hardcover version) and the message inside could not be more clear, concise or true!

As a Christian parent, I really appreciate the strong salavation message in this book and applaud the author and publisher for it’s release. The book starts out by sharing all the wonderful things little hands CAN do (such as digging, painting and tidying rooms to comforting others and cheering them on), to remind children they were CREATED by God, and when their hands do something we’re NOT supposed to do (like pushing or hitting), it begins to tell children about Jesus’ hands and the things His hands did, especially on the cross when He DIED for our sins. I love that the story works in praying for forgiveness and asking God for help to obey, to do what is right.

This is sure to be a beloved favorite (even more than Hands Are Not For Hitting!) among young children. It would make a great birthday gift, wonderful addition to a local child’s library and/or used in a classroom as a school or church resource!

“A new favourite from the Training Young Hearts series”

Our kids (7,5,1) all loved Abbey Wedgeworth's board books from the same series (and they remain our weekly reads, not if daily!), so when this new rhyming book came out, we were all super excited. This picture book presents a similar message with a similar structure, aimed at a slightly older audience. We love how colourful and captivating Emma Randall's illustrations are, and how gospel-centred and relatable Abbey's writing is. This is a resource I'd recommend to every family who'd like to teach their children how to use their body parts for God's glory, and how to find grace and help in our perfect and compassionate Lord Jesus. Can't wait for her next books!

Note: Thank you @thegoodbookau for a free copy in exchange for my honest review.

“Great book to learn God's simple love”

Your Amazing Hands is a wonderful book that simply conveys that God loves us so much that no matter what we DO, as long as we run to Jesus, He can help us change in our hearts, which will lead to change in our actions.

I love the sweet illustrations and simple story that will help children learn the simple truth of God's love through Jesus.

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

“Communicates Deep Truths”

We absolutely love this sweet book! My two-year-old is wanting to read it multiple times a day, every day!
The rhythmic pattern is easy to follow, fun to read, and communicates deep truths - from God as our creator to Jesus as our Savior, what our hands were created to do and not do, and how we honor God with our hands and ask for forgiveness when we use our hands against others.
The illustrations in this series display a wide variety of kids and gives readers the chance to see themselves on pages or learn about other types of people that God created.
This book has been a springboard for some good questions and discussions, and I’m sure we will be enjoying it daily for awhile to come ☺️

“Another great book in the Training Young Hearts series!”

Another great book in the Training Young Hearts series! This charming rhyming book celebrates God’s good design for our hands, inspiring children to use their hands to glorify God and honor others. I love how these books are fun for little ones and helpful to parents in teaching their children the Gospel in an age-appropriate and substantial format. I highly recommend this one and the other board books in the series. It's worth noting that the book includes cartoon-style depictions of Christ, which might be something to consider if your family has specific convictions on that.
