A spare, poignant picture book reminding us that when someone looks lonely and in need of a friend, one little word can help.

A lone dog comes upon a group of kids playing ball and with leaping ease, joins the game. They're all having so much fun, they don't see a sad little boy standing off by himself. Who will spy the boy and invite him to play? With arresting images by a master illustrator and a simple, touching text by his son, SAY HELLO evokes the joy and relief of finding a new friend just when it's needed the most.

Foreman's beautifully simple story starts with a small boy longing play with the other children. When the other children notice him and invite him to play, the boy is overjoyed. Ages 0-6.

A really lovely and simple book about the loneliness that comes from feeling left out or bullied. A great introduction to the topic for any child.
