The Lovereading4Kids comment

As much an atlas as a language learning book Hello World is a clever way to stimulate children’s interest in the world and the many different peoples who share it and if they read it from start to finish, children will be able to say hello to people in every country in the world! Stylish and clearly designed pages illustrate the continents and outline the different countries highlighting not cities or landscape features but the people who live there and their word for hello. Under neat little flaps are pronunciation guides and facts about the language. There are some mind-boggling pieces of information, for example there are over 1,300 different languages in Australia and the isles of the Pacific, almost a fifth of the world’s total among a tiny population. An unusual and very rewarding information book.
