In this multicultural version of the traditional song, children from cultures all over the world clap their hands, stomp their feet, pat their heads, and much more. The accompanying singalong CD continues the interactive fun! It includes two full spreads at the end that teach hello - in thirty-six languages, and the names of the children and their countries of origin. It is illustrated by Sophie Fatus, artist of the best-selling "Barefoot Books" yoga range, including "My Daddy is a Pretzel", "Yoga Pretzels" and "Yoga Planet". It joins Barefoot's popular "Singalong Songs" series which also includes "Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush", "The Animal Boogie" and "Driving My Tractor".
