Renowned artist Michael Foreman invites small children to explore the world and its wonders. And what better way to do so than with friends?
As the day begins, Teddy and Baby set out to discover the wide world around them. New friends join with them as they go - kittens, puppies, ducklings, frogs, and chicks. There are trees to climb, fields to run in, sunny rocks to rest upon - and at the top of the hill, at the end of the day, the most magical discovery of all.

Michael Foreman is one of the world’s leading illustrators. He has written and illustrated numerous children’s books, including MICHAEL FOREMAN'S PLAYTIME RHYMES, and has won such major awards as the Kate Greenaway Medal, the Kurt Maschler Award, and the Bologna Graphics Prize. Of HELLO, WORLD, he says, "With this book, the ambition was to create what might well be a child’s first book - to introduce very young children to the world and to the world of books."From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-As the sun rises, a teddy bear rouses a sleeping toddler: "Wake up, Baby. Let's go and see the world." While heading outdoors, they pass a family of cats and invite them along. When the kittens ask, "Will there be trees to climb?" they are assured that there will be trees and "much, much more." Eventually, puppies, frogs, ducks, and a hen and her chicks traipse along behind the pair. As the day progresses, they pass through woods and fields of wheat and flowers, and finally climb a hill where "all the wide world was before them." The book ends with a foldout spread that shows all of the travelers silhouetted against rolling hills with the moon smiling down on them. The simple, poetic text flows perfectly, and is accompanied by soft pastel-and-watercolor illustrations. From the light blues of the early morning to the blazing yellows of midday to the twilight shades of the final scene, the paintings reveal a serene and uncluttered world. A lovely book for reading aloud to small groups or for sharing one on one.
