This saddens the monster and he says hello to the bush, the stump, the rock, the slug, and the bunnies, but they run and hide again. The monster becomes more and more sad.
He sits and says hello to a log, a stick, the dirt, and the bunnies, watching, come out of hiding and say "hi" to the monster. They spend time happy and playing until the monster sees something else to say hello to.
The illustrations are brightly colored and help a child learn colors. The facial expressions on all the creatures are darling. I can't wait to share this book with my grand kids.

Link to our NICU book registry if you'd like to donate books to babies in the newborn intensive care unit so their parents can read to them while they grow. You can also donate gently used books to our project by sending them to me or to Angie. Email me for a mailing address. We can use both English and Spanish books. If you have a graduate of the NICU, or if you have a baby whose life you would like to honor by donating books to this project, let me know, and I can make a book plate with their name for the books you donate.
