Review | Say Hello! by Rachel Isadora

Say Hello!Description: On her way to see grandma, a young girl encounters people of all different ethnicity’s throughout her neighborhood and greets them in their respective languages.

Story: I liked Say Hello! for multiple reasons. The first being the interactive part of learning how to say hello in different languages. I liked even more that there was an index in the back of the book telling me the correct pronunciation of each of the ways to say hello. The story was okay, I’ve seen it done a lot of times: child leaves home on a pursuit of a destination (usually to visit grandma) and along the way she meets lots of different people in the neighborhood. I liked the versatility of all the different languages that were encountered, which seemed a lot more comprehensive than I’ve seen done in other similar books.

Illustrations: Fun, creative, and modern illustrations.
