Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1—A girl wearing a red scarf greets a nippy late summer morning. The child wanders through woods, by a creek, and across farmland and finally arrives in town, encountering all sorts of flora and fauna along the way. She greets everyone in a friendly tone, saying hello to trees, blue jays, foxes, distant thunder, breezy wind, and the approaching chill in the air. In the end, returning home, it's "Goodbye, summer…Hello autumn!" Short sentences are positioned over the pictures. The spare text and muted watercolor illustrations blend perfectly to create a feeling of wonder at the change of seasons. This is an upbeat look at the promise of fall's glories. VERDICT A gentle, gorgeous welcome to summer's end and fall's beginning, perfect for storytime or one-on-one reading.—Anne Chapman Callaghan, Racine Public Library, WI --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic illustrations - poorly written text
By Amazon Customer on October 17, 2016
The book is about a girl who is taking a walk at the end of summer/early fall. She says "Hello" to animals, thunder, wind, leaves, etc. and they respond.

The pictures are gorgeous and that's why I purchased the book, but the text is poorly written. Take for instance this line, "Hello, breezy wind. Hello! I love to whoosh drizzle and leaves through the misty streets." What does that even mean, "whoosh drizzle and leaves"? We gave up reading the book and now just make up our own story. It's too bad because the illustrations are truly fantastic.
