Friday Favorites

Say Hello Like This! by Mary Murphy is a boisterous romp through animal sounds.  The split-page says that the animals says hello like this, and you turn the page and they are all over the place making their sound.  It begins with dogs, goes to cats, frogs, chickens and so on.  I really love the chicken page, where the adult chickens cluck and the baby chicks peep.
The illustrations were done in ink and watercolor, then rendered digitally.  The animals are as lively as the preschoolers that will love this title. We enjoyed this in Storytime and since I only had a few, the preschoolers were encouraged to join right in and be a frog, or donkey, or chicken.
