Book of the week: Say Hello!
What I do have for you today is a great picture book to start off the school year: Rachel Isadora's Say Hello! Carmelita lives in a very ethnically diverse neighborhood and loves to say hello to all of her neighbors. The illustrations are adorable (reminiscent of Eric Carle) and the young ones will love repeating "hello" in different languages. There is a pronunciation guide in the back that tells the languages, so you can have students guess and then check their answers in the back.
So to any new readers out there: Konichiwa!
