Booktalk #1

Lend A Hand is a collection of poems celebrating young people who give of themselves through acts of kindness. From donating hair to provide a wig for a chemo patient to raising a puppy to assist a blind or deaf person, they are making a difference in the lives of others.
   (Booktalk by the Louisiana Young Readers' Choice Committee)

Booktalk #2

The Joy of Giving. Paying it forward. Making a Difference. However it is said, lending a hand to help others in need is a simple act of kindness. In this collection of fourteen original poems, readers can see that simple acts such a giving up a seat on a bus to a person in need or training a puppy to become a guide dog can impact others. The poems show how compassion and giving can provide joy to the giver as well as the receiver. Look to this collection of diverse voices to learn how extending a helping hand can help bridge differences. (Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Award Program, 2017)
