Video: ‘Hello Hello’ by Brendan Wenzel

Here’s a video for sharing with young people or animal lovers, introducing a new picture book from Brendan Wenzel, Caldecott Honor-winning author of They All Saw a Cat.

Hello, Hello begins with two cats, one black and one white, followed by a chain of animals appearing before the reader, linked together by at least one common trait–colors, shapes or abstract associations.

According to his website, Wenzel is “an ardent conservationist” and “proud collaborator with many organizations working to ensure the future of wild places and threatened species, especially within Southeast Asia.” It’s no surprise that his new book features over 30 threatened species.

If you want to follow him on Twitter, you’ll see that the bio for @brendan_wenzel reads: lllustrator with great affection for all things furred, feathered and scaled. 

(He had me at the first Hello.)
