Each month you can read a new language for hello and/or goodbye.

Rules: This is a spelling challenge, so use the authors first or last name or the title or series title that starts with that letter. If you use the series title, please make sure to include that in your book list. You can choose Either Hello Or Goodbye Or do both.
