It’s a big, beautiful world out there, and we want young children to say “Hello”! Big, colourful photographs show off animals to their best advantage. Whether they can only take in the pictures while a grown-up reads to them or can make their way on their own through the simple text, early readers will have fun saying "Hello!" to a different animal with each turn of the page. As they go, they will begin to build a love and respect for the world around them. At the back of the book are basic facts about each pictured animal to help answer their questions.
