Summary
Carmelita loves to greet everyone in her colorful neighborhood. There are people from so many different cultures! They all like to say hello too, so now Carmelita can say hello in Spanish, English, French, Japanese, and many other languages. And her dog, Manny? Well, he seems to understand everyone, and gives a happy "Woof!" wherever he goes.Caldecott Honor winner Rachel Isadora's eyecatching collages are full of kid-friendly details like colorful storefronts, pigeons and an ice cream truck, making Carmelita's neighborhood fun to explore. Emphasizing the rich diversity of America's neighborhoods, this simple portrait of a child's day provides a great introduction to the joy of language.


Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "One morning Carmelita, her mother, and their dog Manny go to visit Abuela Rose. Walking through their neighborhood, they run into friends and shopkeepers and stop to greet them in different languages: Buenos días to Señor Enrico at the bodega, Shalom to Mrs. Rosen and her children, Konichiwa to the Japanese restaurant staff, Jambo, to Joseph and his parents, Al salaam a'alaykum to the butcher and his family, and so on. In contrast, Manny greets everyone with woof. There's no real drama; the text is pared down to essentials and the striking collage-style illustrations are colorful and dynamic. Richly patterned with oil paints as well as printed patterns, the cut-paper shapes show up vividly against the white backgrounds. Pair this upbeat book with Manya Stojic's Hello World! (2002) and Lila's Prap's Animals Speak (2006) for opening discussions of different languages and cultures.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Carmelita, a girl in pigtails with a butterscotch complexion, walks with her mother and her dog through a multicultural neighborhood en route to meet her Abuela Rosa. Each individual they encounter says hello in his or her respective language, and Carmelita echoes back each greeting. "Shalom!' says Mrs. Rosen and her children," while a man flipping pizzas at an Italian restaurant calls "Ciao!" Even less formal greetings gets their due as Carmelita's friends shout "Hey!" and "Wuzzup?" Isadora's trademark textural collages, using oil paint and printed papers that recall batik, vividly convey the joys of diversity. Ages 3-5. (Apr.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
