Product Description Hello, world! Is a series designed to introduce first nonfiction concepts to babies and toddlers. Told in clear and easy terms ("Apple seeds start to grow when they are planted in soil and given sunlight, water, and fresh air") and featuring bright, cheerful illustrations, Hello, world! Is a perfect way to bring Science, nature, and culture into the busy world of a toddler, where learning never stops. Look for all the books in the Hello, world! Series: solar system, weather, backyard bugs, birds, dinosaurs, My Body, and ocean life. Review "An added fact in a smaller font ('It takes two to three years for a seed to become a sapling') on each spread extends the usefulness of the book beyond the board-book audience. . . . Useful when apple trees bloom and again during apple-picking season."— Kirkus About the Author JILL McDONALD is the Missouri-based illustrator of the Hello, World! board book series.
