I highly recommend this Say Hello to the Snowy Animals!
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!
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.'

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?
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
so i cant leave it with my 18 month to 'read' on his own.... but oterwise it is lovely!!
