Hello, Goodbye by David Lloyd, Louise Voce


Hello, Goodbye by David Lloyd, Louise Voce

A tree stood quietly in the sunshine. A big brown bear stepped up. Hello! he said, very loudly. Hello! Hello! come little voices, squeaky voices and deep-down voices from all over the tree. But when it begins to rain, what do you think they say?


A personal favourite and deceptively simple - with one of the best bears ever. Vivian French, The Guardian

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – age 11

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

At @HHSHaringey we love @lovereading4kids because our pupils can practice reviewing & get free upcoming books before anyone else!

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

Georgie Rowe – age 16

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

I think Lovereading4kids is an amazing company because of the friendly staff and the fabulous chance to read great books before publication.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
