We traveled all around the world at Story Time today, learning to say "hello" and "goodbye" in many different languages with the following books:
Say Hello! by Rachel Isadora
A little girl greets people in her neighborhood in many different languages!
Explore how many different animals greet each other!
Say Hello by Jack and Michael Foreman
Written when the author was ten years old, this book tells of a dog and a boy who are both lonely until they are included by others.
Various animals greet the sunrise in their own unique voices, except for the owl who welcomes the night.
How Do You Say Hi? Action Rhyme:
Hey! Hi! Howdy! Yo!
There are many ways to say hello!
Wave your hand. Nod your head.
Smile big or wink instead.
Blow a kiss. Tip your hat.
Shake your hands. Give a pat.
Of all the ways to say hello,
Here's the way I like to go... HELLO!
(from Multi-cultural Children's Songs by Ella Jenkins)
Hello and how are you?
I'm fine, I'm fine
I hope that you are too!
