“A celebration of the myriad forms of animal life this planet hosts . . . a joyful way to deliver a message about the fragility of life on Earth and what would be lost if more of it disappeared.” –Publishers Weekly, starred review
May 19th is Endangered Species Day, an ideal opportunity for teachers, parents, librarian and caregivers to share Caldecott-Honoree Brendan Wenzel's acclaimed picture book, Hello Hello with young readers.
Hello Hello showcases species classified as endangered, vulnerable and threatened from around the world and beautifully demonstrates how the earth’s creatures are connected . Hello Hello has been described by the New York Times as, “ spreading its arms wide, introducing the staggering range of species that share the earth” and lauded by the Wall Street Journal as “ a subtle exhortation to notice the beauty and variety of animals, especially rare and endangered ones. ”
To further efforts to protect wildlife around the world, Publisher Chronicle Books has made a donation of $25,000 to the Wildlife Conservation Society in honor of the publication of Hello Hello.
