Else to do.
No books to read,
No games to play,
A real gray day.
Meet the hippos?a lovable, zany crew ready to escort children and parents through the all-too-often boring concepts of counting, colours, and moods. But not this time!
These hippos wear purple flip-flops and blue dungarees; they pull hair when they are angry (and end up in the time-out chair!) and sulk when they are sad; they jump out of planes with parachutes, and slide down snow-covered hills on sleds. And they even play in one awesome marching band!
Written by beloved children's author Jane Yolen specifically for the youngest reader, and brought to life with Vlasta van Kampen's rollicking, colourful art, this playful series features sturdy board-book construction (complete with rounded edges) that will stand the test of time. And that's a good thing, since these three gems are bound to become “read it again? classics!
