Happy I'm a Hippo

Hippo doesn’t want to be a hippo. She’d rather be an eagle or a buffa-luffa-lo. But when she meets a scary crocodile she learns something very important: hippos are brave and kind too! With its catchy rhymes, lyrical prose and lush jungle illustrations, this read-aloud romp conveys an irresistible message about loving the person you are.
