Hello, Hello!

Hello, Hello!As I was looking around in a first grade classroom today, my eye spotted the book, Hello, Hello! by Miriam Schlein.  The gentle faces of the lions intrigued me.  I love finding new books and this one is a keeper.  Children love animals and have so many questions about them.  Miriam Schlein shared information about the animals through a question and answer text structure.  It’s a great mentor text to show your students who are interested in nonfiction.  Miriam narrows her focus from an all-about nonfiction book, that many of our children like to write, to just about their greetings.  Fascinating!

Daniel Kirk’s illustrations are delightful.  He uses a two page spread to capture the animal characters.
