By Maryann Cocca-Leffler 

A perfect picture book for toddlers on the go! All toddlers live by the pleasure principle; for them, fun times always end too soon. Often, they’ll either turn a deaf ear to the words "It's time to say bye-bye" or simply throw a tantrum. What is the solution? In this warm-hearted picture book, Maryann Cocca-Leffler follows a toddler from morning to bedtime, showing that all saying "bye-bye" to something really means is that you're ready to say "hello" to the next fun thing in your busy day! With a bare minimum of words and playful artwork, this is one of those rare read-alouds perfect for very young children.
