We ordered this book for our one-year-old for Christmas. When it arrived, she took to it right away - as our daughter is very charmed by dogs, the cover certainly contributed to the love at first sight. The book itself is charming, introducing each soft-to-the touch animal with a little rhyme. When it comes time to say goodnight to them all at the end of the book, the recognition of each animal only contributes to the fun. Our daughter pats each animal on the head before contentedly closing the book.
I highly recommend this Say Hello to the Snowy Animals!

Format: Paperback
Another super velvety 'touch and feel' book from Ian Whybrow.

In large paperback format (c 24.75 cm square) this book opens to 18 high quality pages, in the popular 2-page spread format.
Endearing illustrations throughout, from Ed Eaves.

From the back cover:-

'Come with Husky and say hello.
In the land of ice and snow!
Stroke the soft, furry animals on each page.
Then enjoy shouting out all their noises.
What a lot of snowy fun!'

And it was rather 'noisy', at the local library tots' meeting, earlier this week!
This book was a HUGE hit!
The majority of the text is laid out in rhyming couplet style which further adds to the atmosphere of the 'read-out-loud' scenario.
The quieter guests loved the velvety texturing on the various animals, starting on the front cover!

Example of text:-

'Come with me and say hello
In the land of ice and snow.

Who's that fishing over there?
Say hello to the polar bear.

Hello Polar Bear!
Grrr, grrr, grrr!

Here's a funny feathery fowl!
Say hello to the snowy owl.

Hello, Snowy Owl!
Hoo-hoo, hoo-hoo!......'

This delightful book ends with a double page spread of all the animals saying 'goodbye', and giving the young listener/s ample opportunity to shout out all the new noises learned earlier on!

'.....What a lovely snowy night!
Goodbye, Husky! Snuggle up tight.'

What an amazing book which has such beautiful pictures and entertainment for your little one, at first my daughter did not tend to touch the pages so much, but now she realizes that the "touchy freely" animal on every page it's great.

Highly recommend!

I bought this for my daughter on the strength of the previous reviews. I can only confirm what everyone else has said.

The illustration is lovely and the light texture of the painted animals still gets even me to touch them. The verse is very nice and builds our daughter up to bedtime well. We have been using this as a bedtime book (swapping in and out with Goodnight Moon and a couple of the Noisy Noisy books) from 15mths to 22mths. I am sure it will still rotate into her schedule for a couple of years.

After meeting each of the animals, making their sounds, and performing some actions we invented together, my daughter gets to say goodbye to each animal on the last page. She loves this and formed a habit of kissing the book goodnight (now done with every book) before she would get into bed.

This is a perfect book for bedtime and introducing your child to some northern animals. How many kids under two do you know that talk about Caribous and Puffins?

Highly recommended.

my daughter already had "say hello to the animals" (set on a farm) and loved it, so when this book came out at play group she was really excited and we came home and ordered it right away.

the animals in it are a bit velvety and she loves stroking them

the text in this one doesnt flow as easily as in the farm one, but they are both lovely

My daughter loves "Say Goodnight to the Sleepy Animals!" by the same author so I got this but the animals are more unusual and so are the sounds they make, although she still likes the feel and all the colours

Bought as it's from the same range as Say Hello to the Jungle Animals and Baby Animals. This one was very disappointing and the writing in the book is no where near the same style as the other books.
