    I will recommend this book to my students who seem like they are very interested in learning about music.

    This book is inspired by the folk song "He's got the whole world in his hands". Kadir Nelson puts this world known song to beautiful illustrations. Although the illustrations are magnificent and this book could be enjoyed by simply looking at the pictures, the story line will not keep readers attention, and this book would be enjoyed by listeners only once.

    In my opinion, this was a great, interactive text. Kadir Nelson does a great job of incorporating music and a popular native song into his novel while also expressing means of multiculturalism. His illustrations span across both pages and are very vivid and colorful. The language follows after the popular song we all know and is clear and convoluted, when read. The text is large enough for easy reading. The characters are all of different color, which make this book a great read for all. There is no point of view in the book because it is a sing along with pictures. However, the illustrations do a great job of telling a story based on the lyrics that correspond to that page. This book pushes readers to think about the importance of our world and the different people that live in it. As well as the pictures and the text, there is an interactive sing along placed in the back of the book, which allows kids to take the book home and sing to their family. It also allows them to recognize repeating patterns such as "He's got the whole world in his hands." Recognizing these patterns can help decode harder words and work on fluency skills. Something so vital in their early years of development. Overall, this piece of literature focuses on the importance of multiculturalism and touches on sing along and interactive role play.

    Encouraged by the song, He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands expresses how the Lord has the Earth “in His hands” and each person as well. The book reminds us of nature’s beauty with its references to oceans, mountains and clouds. With simple straightforward writing and eye-catching paintings, this book is perfect for young readers as they will be able to follow along. The pictures also provide synergy and will help emergent readers. Children will enjoy this book as they can sing along with it.
