reviewed Humands (A Star elephant book) on
A book with where the artists paint their hands to create different human creatures. No words, so it's good for little ones who can't read yet but like to be involved. Nice springboard for ideas of creativity. Let kids tell their own stories to go with the pictures or create their own hand painting creations.

Mariotti does amazing things with his hands and a bit of paint, turning his fingers into faces and his knuckles into noses.

How creative he is is unfathomable to me, who wants to be as cool as he is, but fails often. What an imagination this guy has! Just looking at the cover makes me smile: a little open-mouthed face painted onto his thumb, with his nail as the figure's mouth.

Many pictures of his hands as people fill this fun book. Highly recommended, both for children and adults. Who knows? This may springboard into a fun end-of-winter-we-all-have-cabin-fever-let's-do-something-fun activity for the whole family as you try to make your own "humands" with body paint and a dash of creativity.
