But Not the Hippopotamus - Boynton

Age Level: Ages 0–5

The hippopotamus may not want to join in on all the fun, or will he?

The Sandra Boynton books have been part of our favorite book collection. Having them on the iPad, with additional tappable fun has just made them more desirable. With original artwork, read to me and read myself choices, as well as hearing individual words sounded out with a tap of a finger, But Not the Hippopotamus will go a long way in getting your little ones interested in reading. Personally, I found that rhyming books went a long way in making reading a fun and interesting experience for my kids. The words were easy to pick up on, join in on and later read on their own. The rhyming books were always the top of the list at bedtime.

Made for kids 5 and under, one a bit older can get a little reading practice in. Short, fun little books like this make a great head start. Before you know it, your kids will be reading to you!
