This triumphant picture book recasts a charged phrase as part of a black girl's everyday life hands up for a hug hands up in class hands up for a high five before culminating in a moment of resistance at a protest marchA young black girl lifts her baby hands up to greet the sun reaches her hands up for a book on a high shelf and raises her hands up in praise at a church service She stretches her hands up high like a plane's wings and whizzes down a hill so fast on her bike with her hands way up As she grows she lives through everyday moments of joy love and sadness And when she gets a little older she joins together with her family and her community in a protest march where they lift their hands up together in resistance and strength

    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 fivesThis all culminates with her being a teenager and raising her arms in protestTHE 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 lifeTHE 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 wayI 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 childrenTLDR 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 children 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
