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?
A great addition to libraries’ and teacher’s shelves for units on community helpers.
