Goodbye Brings Hello: A Book of Firsts
Change can be both exciting and frightening. In this attractively illustrated book with rhyming words to accompany the new events that come as we grow up, readers ages three to seven are shown how change happens. Clothes get small while the body gets big. Transforming from a trike to a bike, the initial shock of jumping into a swimming pool or now pumping that playground swing up into the sky, these are growing experiences, just as is finally learning how tie a bow on challenging shoe laces. And then there is the sudden adjustment of preparing for school and learning how to smear jelly on a bread slice to make a sandwich snack. It’s time to trade huggable, lovable teddy for the warmth of new friendships that are yet to be made during the new school experience. The lovely, colorful drawings of the boys and girls as they learn new skills and start their way to a new adventure in school is an engaging story for parents and children to share, and the authors charmingly show through words and pictures that for beginners, trying new things takes courage.
