Summary :

A tender and affectionate series of tete-a-tetes between three moms and their children. "I love my mommy's hands," says an Asian girl, who clings to her mother's hand in the rain. A little redhead loves to count his mom's freckles when his hands pull her close. An African American boy watches his mom's hands pour milk and never spill a drop. The activities are those of daily life: making frost pictures on the windows in winter, planting radishes in the spring, gazing at the constellations on a summer night. The pictures are done in sweet pastel colors without being cloying. The gentlest of lines define facial features and hair--wavy, curly--and the hands of both mothers and children are as expressive as dance and as lovely as flowers.
