Helpful Hannah Hippo, Dino F. Martins

Helpful Hannah Hippo opening line: The morning sunlight streamed down from a crisp, clear blue sky.

Helpful Hannah Hippo

My blurb:

Hannah the Hippo and Ollie the Oxpecker set out to discover who a lost chick belongs to. Along the way they meet other birds and animals, including Red Dropwing, a dragonfly.

Helpful Hannah Hippo
“Does anyone know who this little chick belongs to?”
Hannah sets out to help a friend who is lost and on the way learns about the world around her. She meets lots of different creatures while on a journey at the hippo pools.
My verdict:

A delightful book about being helpful, that will teach children about some of the animals and birds of the area. It is wonderfully illustrated and the prose flows smoothly enough for a young child to be able to follow along.
