Named the Best Board Book of 2018 by Parents Magazine
What's the best way to say hello to anyone you meet? A handshake? Too formal! A hug? Too scary! The answer is a hi-five, of course! With his flair for hilarious cartooning and charismatic characters, author-artist Ross Burach crafts a brilliant original concept board book that will have young children laughing and hi-fiving their way to developing critical social-emotional skills.
Ross Burach is the creator of the riotously funny picture books The Very Impatient Caterpillar
, which the Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
called "supercharged" in a starred review, and the acclaimed Truck Full of Ducks
, a CBC Children's Choice Award Finalist, as well as the board books I Love My Tutu Too!
, dubbed "A rollicking tutu lovefest" in a starred review from Kirkus Reviews
; Potty All-Star
; and Hi-Five Animals!
