Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
In this book, the author/illustrator explores the theme and variation on two of the most often used words, "hello" and "good-bye." The pages are clearly organized and give the impression of a pictorial dictionary of sorts. In her soft, multi-layered technique, Aliki uses watercolor paints, colored pencils, and black pen to illustrate the various ways people greet each other and say farewell. The concepts range from the use of other languages and other dialects to the emotional good-bye we give to someone who has died. Readers will recognize themselves in many of the illustrations especially the one where the young child has to say good-bye to an obnoxious playmate. On that page, Aliki writes, "Some good-byes are easy to say!"
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3Aliki has outdone herself with this fine concept book. Vivid cartoons rendered in watercolors and colored pencils show plenty of action and accurately reflect the concise text that explains the many ways to say "hello" and "goodbye." While entertaining readers, the author offers vocabulary by providing synonyms, and then explains that sometimes words are not necessary if gestures are used. Illustrations of people from far-away lands in traditional dress are found throughout. This engaging picture book makes a good read-aloud, but it is a better choice to sit and read one-on-one in order to mine all the gold nuggets to be found on each page. A winner!Susan Garland, Maynard Public Library, MA
