Be prepared to read this over and over

I first borrowed this book from my local library as I have learned the hard way (buying books that my daughter doesn't like) that just because a book is for your child's age group it is not necessarily of interest to your child. This book is both girlie and funny and it unusual rhyme patterns. There is ballet, tea parties, swimming and hide-and-seek all in one book. What's not to like? My daughter who is 3 loves each of the short segments and says some parts along with me when I read it. The colors are vibrant as a picture book should be and the wording is to the point as well. I hope you enjoy it too.

HATTIE HIPPO has fun - and listeners and younger readers will, too.

Hattie loves to dance, swim and play: four parties display her talents in a book geared for read-aloud pleasure, HATTIE HIPPO. From ballet on 'teensy tiny toes' to her hide and seek talents - which are enormous considering her size - HATTIE HIPPO has fun - and listeners and younger readers will, too. Diane C.

Simple and captivating

Just picked this up at the aiport bookstore while waiting for a plane. My 2 y-o daughter loves it and has accpeted it immediately into her cache of nightime books (a true feat!). Whimsical yet simple illustrations capture the imagination of young children and the short and sweet ryhming stories are cute. A couple of the rhymes seemed a reach to me...that's why only 4 stars.
