So Close by Natalie Columbo
"The story of Mr. Duck and Mr. Rabbit is a lesson to us all about reaching out. Every morning, Mr. Duck and Mr. Rabbit hurry past each other on their way to work and every evening they hurry past each other on their way home. Their paths cross in the town square and in the street and even in the park, but though both of them are dreadfully lonely, neither has the courage to speak."
A lovely picture book for preschool groups and older. The illustrations are colour rich and the text though short and simple speaks to the power of the word "Hello" and what can follow.
A wonderful addition to any storytime
