Outside the world is bright and colorful, but Lydia's family is too busy with their gadgets to notice. She says "Hello" to everyone. "Hello? Hello!" Her father says hello while texting, her mother says hello while working on her laptop and her brother doesn't say hello at all. The T.V shouts Hello! But she doesn't want to watch any shows.
Lydia, now restless, ventures outside. There are so many things to say hello to! Hello rocks! Hello leaves! Hello flowers! When Lydia comes back home she decides to show her family what she has found, and it's hello world and goodbye gadgets!
This delightful picture book was included in our special collection of the Top 2012 Mighty Girl Books.
"Cordell (Another Brother) outdoes himself with this silly, loving nose-tweak to digital civilization. Lydia’s electronic gadgets fail to charm her one afternoon, and her family members -- all drawn in shades of gray -- are lost in their own virtual worlds... The vision of Lydia and her escape is a glorious image of liberation; it’s required reading for any kid with a phone." -- Publisher's Weekly
