Ethan Long

Board book

List Price: 7.95*
* Individual store prices may vary.


A string of comically stylized animals greet each other in masterfully rhyming couplets—an owl’s “hoo” is answered by a cow’s “moo”; a crow’s “caw” is returned with a donkey’s “hee-haw”—all leading up to the “hi!” and “good-bye!” of a human toddler and his mom! The first in a brand-new board book series on animal (and human) first words by award-winning author and illustrator Ethan Long. Also by Ethan Long: Thank You! and Lion & Tiger & Bear: Tag, You're It!

Praise For Hi! (Animal Sounds)

"A clever, deceptively simple board book...A completely satisfying, age-appropriate package."

— Kirkus Reviews

"[T]his friendly chain of greetings and Long’s bright, spongy-edged digital illustrations create an infectious sense of good cheer."
