    So this book shows a little black girl growing up in America It has her raising her hands up for various things in her life Greeting the sun, playing peek a boo, getting dressed, stretching to reach something on a shelf, using the sink, holding her hair back, swinging on her mom and dad s arms, raising hands in class, reaching for the book on the high shelf, going into fifth position in ballet, riding a bike with hands in the air, accepting help when she falls, raising her hands at a concert, So this book shows a little black girl growing up in America It has her raising her hands up for various things in her life Greeting the sun, playing peek a boo, getting dressed, stretching to reach something on a shelf, using the sink, holding her hair back, swinging on her mom and dad s arms, raising hands in class, reaching for the book on the high shelf, going into fifth position in ballet, riding a bike with hands in the air, accepting help when she falls, raising her hands at a concert, in defense playing basketball, raising a trophy in triumph, giving high fives.This all culminates with her being a teenager and raising her arms in protest.THE ENDTHE GOOD Love the positive, warm family shown in this book Grandma doing Viv s hair, mom and dad playing with her I like how it shows strong community I like how it shows different slices and ages of Viv s life.THE BADI m not sure you can divorce the phrase, Hands up from what is going on in BLM today and the phrase, Hands up Don t shoot being so prevalent and scary right now I know what McDaniel is doing, For many people, the phrase hands up brings forward difficult emotions like anger, sadness, frustration and fear With this story, I wanted to emphasize the ways I ve experienced that phrase as part of my everyday life at home, at play, in church, and at protests with young people leading the way.I understand what she s saying, but I think it s hard for any adult to read this book to a child without a horrible sinking feeling in their stomach I know it was in mine The child won t know anything, but as an adult it s pretty depressing Something to consider if you are going to be reading this to children.TL DR I ll leave it up to you to decide whether this book makes you depressed and if that s a consideration in reading it to children I couldn t stop thinking about the child ren I was reading to growing up and getting shot to death, so the book wasn t worth that to me You could say, Oh, but that s good you felt that way People should feel terrified and then do things to change the world but I don t need help being terrified for both people now and future generations, so this is just a little sprinkling of depression I d rather not have Just my two cents

    A delightful and beautifully crafted book that celebrates all the joyful ways to have your Hands Up This is a much needed reminder and counter story to the negative and usually less than nuanced single narrative of the phrase Hands Up
