About this Book No matter how diverse our world seems to be, everything in it has some form of connection with each other. Beginning with two cats, one black and one white, a chain of animals appears before the reader, linked together by at least one common trait. From simple colors and shapes to more complex and abstract associations, each unexpected encounter celebrates the magnificent diversity of our world—and ultimately paints a story of connection. Brendan Wenzel's joyous, rhythmic text and exuberant art encourage readers to delight in nature's infinite differences and to look for—and marvel at—its gorgeous similarities. It all starts with a simple "Hello."
Reviews from Around the World "My almost-3 and 7 year old both absolutely love this book - and so do I! :) Each time we read it together, we spot new and interesting elements in the illustrations (like how one animal rolls into the next page...a bit of foreshadowing!). The last pages are really interesting as they detail each animal which made an appearance in the book with a corresponding number - which tells you the animal's name and whether it is endangered, threatened, ok, etc. My son (who will turn 3 next month) wants me to read this over and over and over again." - Jess, Amazon
"My 2 daughters (3 and 7) LOVE this book! The illustrations are so beautiful and colorful and my daughters are learning about animals they've never heard of or seen before such as the pangolin (which is the most highly trafficked animal in the world and is on the verge of extinction!). At the end of the book, there's a list of animals (all kinds from not threatened at all to highly endangered). This is an excellent addition to your home library or a great gift to animal lovers!" - Anagram, Amazon
