This review is from: Hippos Go Berserk (Board book)This is a wonderfully simple story about a lonely Hippo sitting at home who is visited by a number of other Hippos. They have a party (Go Berserk) and then the Hippos leave in the same groups as they arrived in leaving the first Hippo all alone again (and missing the other 44 Hippos).
The book is nicely illustrated. It is supported by a simple narrative written in rhyming couplets with a nice rhythm, which makes it good for reading aloud. The book incorporates counting as the Hippos arrive in groups of increasing size (i.e. 2, 3, 4, …, 9) and leave in groups of descending size (9, …, 2).
Great fun. Recommended.
