Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
With a very limited vocabulary of about 13 words the author describes a young girl's outing to the beach. The pages are filled with crisp stylized illustrations and on each spread the text simply says "hello," and whatever the item might be. "Hello, beach! Hello, umbrella! Hello, Seagull! and so on. The illustrations show the object and any related actions. It is a delightful way to introduce very young children to a beach outing and the book is sturdy enough to be tucked into a beach bag when the outing takes place. The surprise in the predictable pattern comes on the final page when the word goodbye is introduced. Part of the "Board Buddies" series. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
Kirkus Reviews
A cheerful little red-haired girl greets beach, umbrella, seagull and so on over the course of one clearly fabulous day at the beach. Each spread presents the girl against the beach background with the one line of dialogue-"Hello, waves [lifeguard, towel, etc.]"-assisting listeners in identifying the focal object of each painting. Sorra provides plenty of opportunities for adults to amplify and expand on the text ("What kind of sandwich is she getting out of the cooler?"), making this a cozily interactive experience, but refrains from crowding her compositions-a happy balance babies and their grown-ups will respond to. (12-24 mos.)
