Praise For…


**STARRED REVIEW**
"Capitalized headers boldly ask "WILL THESE HANDS MAKE," with possibilities unfurling in lyrical, lucid verse beneath. Awe-inspiring double-page spreads show a busy town from multiple, miraculous perspectives. . . McClure encourages readers to trace their hands on two vacant ovals on the final pages, and it seems she's asking also for a promise to do something with their own hands in the future."

— Kirkus Reviews

**STARRED REVIEW** 
"This celebration of citizenry and craft is a poignant reminder of the objects and places that makers weave.  . .The book’s appeal spans a wide range: younger readers will enjoy the seek-and-find aspect, and older readers may find inspiration in its vision of daily life and communal innovation."

— Publishers Weekly

"Careful viewers will be delighted to find scenes revisited in closer detail and from different vantage points. . . The clever bookmaking technique, which moves between the busy scene and its individual sections, produces the joy of a shared experience in which all hands combine."

— Booklist
