Jane Yolen's Hippo Series
One Hippo Hops, Hip Hippos, and Sad, Mad, Glad Hippos all are introduce us to the crazy hippos! They focus on numbers, colors and feelings and, I hope, many other topics as well! Vlasta van Kampen is the illustrator, and she just adds to the fun of these books.These are MAGNIFICENT!!! I am always on the lookout for new "catchy" board books and leave it to Jane Yolen to start us off with a new series that is just superb!! Her Hippo Board Books are now some of my new favorites!
