From Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1-A simply written rhyming text follows a young girl from the moment she is gently wakened by her mother until she kneels beside her bed to give thanks for the day. With the reverence of a modest prayer, brief sentences reveal the complexities of everyday activities. "These hands/can reach./Can stretch./Can teach....These hands/can pray./Can clap./Can play./Can sow the/seeds/for a brighter/day." Whether making chalk drawings on the sidewalk or gently pressing her lips to her pregnant mother's belly, this African-American child's confidence and joy are captured by Collier's deeply hued, evocative collages. While the verse is occasionally forced and the illustrations don't always match the action of the text, the overall result is effective and pleasing.
