I find there are just enough words on the page to keep him interested and not too many that he gets board. I've found him in his bedroom reading these to himself (in a 2.5 year old fashion of course) highly recommend.
Early Years Teachers - This book proved to be an invaluable resource on my teaching placements. As with this well respected and loved children's author, Julia Donaldson, this is a great book with a good story line. It is so versatile and can be enjoyed by many ages. It is really easy to engage with as there are so many possible themes in the story which can be explored to a suitable depth dependent on the children's ages.
Themes: animals, clothes, shopping, money.
- Children could look at all the patterns in the book.
- Children could make some clothes for the animals out of paper with lots of colours and patterns.
- Children could make a shop and price up all the items of the clothing.
- Children could look at where they animals come from and their habitats.
A recommended buy.
I would say the book is great to read to toddlers, but there is only 1 line of text per page. So children reaching school age would be better off with other Julia Donaldson stories, such as The Gruffalo and The Snail and the Whale, which have more content.
But Hippo Has a Hat is a great hit with my 2 year old!
