Sister Anne’s Hands
By Marybeth Lorbiecki
illustrated by K Wendy Popp

An African American nun challenges the beliefs of her year 2 students in this thought-provoking picture book set in the 1960s


Touching, timeless tale about the virtue of tolerance & how a teacher can change a child's life

This universal story - based on a childhood experience - is both funny & poignant

The universal message is far-reaching & accessible to contemporary readers. Warm portraits of students at rapt attention as they listen to the serene Sister Anne add to this book's considerable emotional appeal. Ages 4-8

Ideally suited to introductory units on civil rights

Outstanding in every way

The pictures are breath-taking & the words are powerful

This picture book handles the topic of racism tenderly for young children, an excellent choice!

Those teachable moments that change lives!

One of the most beautiful children's books I have ever read

One of my professors in graduate school used it in class as having examples of beautiful word choice/descriptive wording

An intimate look, through the lens of diversity, at the love that grows between a teacher & a child
