2-Book Set: He's Got the Whole World in His Hands and The World Is Awake: A celebration of everyday blessings (Hardcover – Picture Books)
He's Got the Whole World in His Hands Written and Illustrated by Kadir Nelson What began as a spiritual has developed into one of America’s best-known songs, and now for the first time it appears as a picture book, masterfully created by award-winning artist Kadir Nelson.Through sublime landscapes and warm images of a boy and his family, Kadir has created a dazzling, intimate interpretation, one that rejoices in the connectedness of people and nature.
Inspired by the song’s simple message, Kadir sought to capture the joy of living in and engaging with the world. Most importantly, he wished to portray the world as a child might see it—vast and beautiful.
