Perfect for joining in, this is a delightfully noisy book celebrating all the different and special ways that animals say 'Hello'. Dogs are loud, cats are proud and the donkey is just plain silly. A bouncy rhyming text captures the distinctive features of each special Hello while the animal making it can be revealed by turning a flap.


Say hello like this! Synopsis

Different kinds of animals say hello in their own way. Some say it LOUD - Bow-wow! Some say it PROUD - Meow! And some say it SILLY - Hee-haw! This joyful companion to Mary Murphy's A Kiss Like

This is an ideal read-aloud for the very youngest of listeners. Using a clever split-page format that makes for charming, funny and very NOISY surprises, author-illustrator Mary Murphy shares a series of animal sounds that are sure to have babies and toddlers gurgling, giggling, clapping hands and making plenty more of their own noises, too! Bold colors, lively animals and fun sound words make this a perfect gift for toddlers just learning to speak.
