Say Hello by Jack Foreman


Say Hello by Jack Foreman

Based on the author's childhood experience, Say Hello tells the poignant story of a boy who is left out and all alone, while other children play happily together. Michael Foreman's beautifully spare illustrations perfectly complement the story's underlying message: When someone's feeling left out, low, it doesn't take much to say ...'Hello!'


A useful addition to any school's PSHE collection. An uplifting book by a father-and-son duo with a strong anti-bullying message that encourages inclusion and shows the power of the easiest of gestures: a simple hello. Junior magazine
