Book Trailer Thursday: HELLO HELLO

From New York Times-bestselling author Brendan Wenzel, known best his for Caldecott Honor book They All Saw a Cat, comes a new, engaging romp through the animal kingdom. Hello Hello (Chronicle), with its minimal, rhyming text and warmly illustrated characters, gentle introduces young readers to wildlife conservation. Wenzel’s playful text and endearing illustrations of over thirty species, many of which are threatened, result in a book that is fun and stimulating for early readers, while also introducing readers to rare and endangered species.

As Maggie Reagan writes in her Booklist review: “For the curious, a final four-page spread identifies each creature by their silhouette. In an author’s note, Wenzel gently touches on conservation, explaining that each animal is a vital part of an ecosystem, and that many shown here are threatened or endangered. The first step to saving these animals, he says, is learning about them, and this vivacious, utterly appealing early STEM offering will surely inspire young readers to do just that.”
