From New York Times bestselling author Kelly Corrigan comes a book that celebrates the people in our lives and the meaningful connections we make that come from asking each other questions.
Hello World! is the perfect reminder that the journeys we take through life are all about the people we will meet along the way--people who will make us smarter, stronger, and more amazing than we ever thought possible. With her trademark inspirational wisdom, Kelly Corrigan writes the perfect book for anyone about to embark on a new adventure.
What awaits a young person moving on and out into the world? Echoing Dr. Seuss's Oh, the Places You'll Go!, Corrigan offers the upbeat promise: "Oh the people you will know!" Bouncy, alliterative text haphazardly highlights some individuals that one may encounter, including "People with braids. People with burkas... People in blue jeans. People with black belts," and many others. Since "there's more to everyone than you think," muses Corrigan, asking people questions yields precious fruit: "That's how you'll find out that the butterfly-chaser/ knows how to swim backstroke." Newcomer Ebert delivers brightly colored artwork with a sweet-natured comic zip highlights include a page of variously emotive, dot-eyed faces of varied ages and skin tones. A peppy encouragement to connect with, and be curious about, others. Ages 3 7.
