I am not an animal lover by any means, but I do like children’s books about animals, especially books about animal sounds or how animals live and behave. Hello, Hello!, written by Miriam Schlein and illustrated by Daniel Kirk, is a great book that teaches how different animals greet each other.
Learn how lions, polar bears, wolves, monkeys, elephants, and many more animals greet each other in this book. If you’re reading it to older children, you could practice greeting each other like the animals do.
This book also provides a good opportunity to talk to your children about appropriate ways to greet people when answering the telephone or door or introducing yourself to strangers.
