Hello Hugs

Hello Hugs by Bettina Strong, illustrated by Valerie Bouthyette
PB RRP $14.95
ISBN 978-0-9871624-4-1
Reviewed by Cindy Shames

This picture book is a lovely book that would suit 3 – 5 year olds. The story is a simple story of a little girl who doesn’t like goodbyes. After she says goodbye to her grandmother, she looks forward to her next hello.

The text is very simple and easy to read. The delightful large illustrations enhance the story for the young reader. The colour palate is chosen well as it gives off warmth and a re assuring feel for the mood of the story.  The main character Elizabeth has a warm happy face, which should be enjoyed by the reader. The book demonstrates how positive thinking can make situations seem better.

Bettina Strong has also written Go Ella, Go!
