Who loves a sunny day at the beach? Hippos do! The Happy Hippopotami by the ever-popular Bill Martin, Jr., is one of my favorite stories, about a multi- generational bus trip to the beach. From happy hippopotapooses toddling across the sand, to happy hipppopatapoppas with dimes in hand for boardwalk treats, these beach-loving hippos find all kinds of fun at the shore. Hippos are everywhere, sunning, dancing, making music, competing in events, riding the carnival rides and seeing the shows, till the sun goes down and the tired hippos board the bus for home. The rhymes are creative and delightful and the hippos are beautiful in soft bright watercolor. It’s a ton of fun at the beach! See this book listed in our catalog
