Covers how different animals communicate to say hello--from smelling to rubbing to whistling. Prairie dogs, lions, monkeys, lobsters, giraffes are among the animals.

Such a cute story about how different animals say hello to one another. It shows children that like humans, animals too have different ways to say hello and greet one another. Loved this one! ( )

I LOVE to see how different animals interact. It's always interesting to see how different animals greet each other. Their mating rituals are always interesting, too. ( )

This book was about different animals and how they greet each other. This book is good to read to children to show they how all animals say hello, greet one another, and also how they protect one another as well. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0805037039, Hardcover)

When people meet, they shake hands, hug, smile, and say, "How are you? What's new?" But what about lions and bears and fish? How do they greet one another?

In this intriguing picture book Marilyn Singer explores, explains, and describes the extraordinary ways in which animals communicate. When zebras meet, for example, they pull back their lips and chew the air to show that they won't bite each other.

Young readers will also be introduced to some of the basic elements of animal behavior, such as why lions are the only wild cats that live in groups. Detailed illustrations by Normand Chartier complete this informative look at the fascinating world of the animal kingdom.
