But Not the Hippopotamus (Sandra Boynton)

Recommended, Repeatable

A cute little rhyming story about animals and their antics, and a hippopotamus who never joins in(“a hog and a frog cavort in the bog… but not the hippopotamus”). The pictures are simple but cute, and the rhymes are kind of infectious in a fun way; because the reader can’t help but make some funny voices and intonations while reading, the toddler will be very interested. Mine has asked me to read this book “again” so many times I have it memorized… and I think it’s a great addition into any toddler library.
