This book was more complex than I thought it was going to be. It tells readers how often hello and good-bye is used and when we use it. It tells the different forms of the world hello, i.e., as an introduction, a welcome, a greeting. It shows different ways to say hello, like greetings and howdy. Its mentions a few nonverbal ways to signal hello. Theres mention of what hello and goodbye look like in other languages. It even shows some ways hello and good-bye look and sound the same. The entire book seemed like a giant synonym, vocabulary-like book. It's a good way to introduce other ways to say every day things to increase a child's vocabulary. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0688143334, Hardcover)

Hello. Good-bye.
Every day we use these words.
In one way or another we say
them again and again.
We say "hello" when we meet.
We say "good-bye" when we part.
They are a beginning and an end.

Who but the incomparable Aliki would be able to take these two simple words and show us that they are filled with possibilities. There are many different kinds of hellos -- and just as many good-byes. And each can be filled with excitement and surprise. Start reading-and say hello to fun!
