When Stella and Charlie meet and make friends, they learn all about the sadness of saying goodbye and the happiness of saying hello to someone or something new. When Stella is sad to leave her mum and climb on the school bus, she is pleased to say hello to Charlie when she gets to the new school. And when the children are playing happily outside, they must come inside and play new games there. After the snowmen melt, there are puddles to splash in, and when the goldfish dies, there is a loving arm to console and give a ‘full heart’. But there is one goodbye that is very, very difficult. When Charlie’s family sells up and moves away, both children are bereft: ‘goodbye is the last thing you want to say…goodbye to holding tight is hello to letting go’. But even then, there will always be another hello, in this case to a new friend who has moved into Charlie’s house. And we see there will be letters too. This simple, touching picture book with warm and affecting illustrations will help children learn emotional highs and lows, and to cope with all the hellos and goodbyes they will experience in life. A beautiful book, brimful of quality in production, as well as understanding and love.
