“Hello” and “good-bye” are such common words, they are often taken for granted. Aliki, however, presents a fresh look at greetings and partings with all of their attendant meanings. The text and pictures go hand-in-hand to simply and humorously represent potentially complex ideas to young children. Recommended for ages 3-8.

When an ant falls into the river, his plea for help goes unheeded by the old turtle who was passing by. But soon enough the turtle is in need of help too –and so are all of the other selfish animals in the jungle. Lucky for them the kind-hearted elephant comes to the rescue. But when the elephant suddenly finds himself in need of some help, who among them will show his gratitude? Recommended for ages 3-8.

Weisner deftly weaves his tale from picture to picture; words would simply spoil the fun. This is the Caldecott Award winner for 2007. Recommended for ages 3-8.
