'The mountains and the valleys, the plains and the deserts - the whole world is in our hands - with this gorgeously illustrated, exuberant eco-anthem. The piano music for the familiar tune is at the back of the book as well as a CD. My house is reverberating to 'we've got the w-h--o-o-l-e world...' Angels and Urchins 'Subtle pronoun changes breathe new life into the traditional spiritual "He's Got the Whole World in His Hands" by a shift of responsibility from "his" hands to ours. The rhythm of the song shines through unchanged, but the verses say, "We've got the whole world in our hands," "He's got the birds of the air in his hands," and "She's got the fish of the sea in her hands." Like Kadir Nelson's He's Got the Whole World in His Hands (Dial, 2005), Corr's joyful pictures illuminate the wonder of our world. His bright, folksy paintings focus on the planet's diversity and form a nice contrast with Nelson's scenic illustrations. Comparison of these two books would initiate a great classroom or Sunday school discussion. Supplemental pages provide an explanatory paragraph about each world wonder and music and words for a sing-along. An additional page on "Ways to Reduce Global Warming" suggests another pronoun change.' June Wolfe, Bushnell-Sage Library, Sheffield, MA
