Hands of the Maya: Villagers at Work and Play

Hands of the Maya: Villagers at Work and Play


by Rachel Crandell

Witness loving, working hands in action in this vivid portrait of life in a Maya village.

“Grandmother Apolonia has gone to market for the day to weave and sell her baskets.”

Experience a day in the life of a Maya village. The wisdom of the phrase “Many hands make light work” comes across in vivid detail as the community prepares a warm meal, weaves clothing, constructs roofs, and creates art and music. Best of all-in the morning or at the end of the busy day, a pair of strong, gentle hands never seems hard to find.With its lyrical prose and richly textured photographs, this engaging picture book captures the hard work, love, and respect of the Maya culture. Synopsis by Goodreads
