Thanks to Zonderkidz for sponsoring our giveaway.| What is it about hippos that has my 5-year-old so obsessed? She talks about them nonstop, so it’s no surprise that the arrival of Fiona the Hippo, the new children’s book by Richard Cowdrey, resulted in squeals galore. Book about animals are always a win for us at storytime, and this one is even inspired by the real Fiona, a baby hippo born at the Cincinnati Zoo!
The real Fiona was born prematurely, and was not expected to live. But she was spunky, determined, and very well cared for, which gave her the strength to thrive and grow into a happy, healthy hippopotamus! In telling her story of hope and friendship, the author of Fiona the Hippo has given her her rightful place as a role model for kids everywhere. Soooo sweet!
Zonderkidz always publishes the best kids’ reading, and this book is exactly as cute and lovable as we expected. Author Richard Cowdrey provides an endearing story of inspiration, perseverance, and a lesson about making goals happen, step by step.
We Love Books about Animals!
Along with the most heartwarming, hug-inducing animal illustrations! It’s the perfect tone and message for our little one who is getting ready to start Kindergarten next week. By the end of the book, Fiona is no longer a fragile baby – and neither is our little go-getter! I love showing her a message of working hard and making your goals happen, and who better to teach it than a super cute, inspirational baby hippo!?
