Say Hello Like This! by Mary Murphy-ADVISABLE

Murphy, Mary Say Hello Like This! PICTURE BOOK. Candlewick Press, 2014. $12.99.  This is a great children’s book that creatively explores the sounds that animals make. Murphy describes to children how animals say hello on the left side of the page and then with a turn of a half page insert, she shows them the actual sounds the animals make. “A donkey hello is silly and happy…(turn page) like this!  Hee-Haw! Hee-Haw! Hee- Haw! A beetle hello is tiny and tappy… (turn page) like this!  Tip tap, tip tap, tip tap…” Little ones will love the excitement of turning the half page to reveal the animal sounds and will have fun repeating each animal sound with the reader.  The illustrations are cheery and fun.  This is a great read-aloud book for young ones and would make a perfect baby gift.  Pre-K.  EL(K-3).  ADVISABLE.  Reviewer: SL.
