What fun I had reading this book aloud to my son! For a three year old the book is amusing and eye catching. For slightly older readers there is room for a bit of wondering and questioning. Such as, Did Hippo make a wise and thoughtful decision to go looking for berries? The right intentions were certainly there, but how did his actions effect his friends? Would it have been a nicer day if he had not gone looking for something to contribute to the picnic?
The illustrations are delightfully old-timey and silly and fun, I think you'll like them!
