Board Book: Hi!

Board Book: Hi! A Rhyming Animal Sounds Book. Ethan Long. 2015. Abrams. 20 pages. [Source: Review copy]

Premise/Plot: Hi! is an rhyming board book full of animals greeting each other. For example, an owl, "Hoo" and a cow, "Moo." The text is simple and quite limited: just animal sounds and "hi" and "goodbye."

My thoughts: It was okay. It looks simple, but, that doesn't mean it was easy to write necessarily. I like that some of the animals featured in the book are unique. When you think of books focused on animal sounds, you think either farm or jungle: oink or roar! Anteaters and yaks aren't as popular. The illustrations are bright, colorful, and fun.
