Pick of the Week: Hidden Hippo

Many children love a good game of hide-and-seek. This also is true of books with this same theme. In Hidden Hippo, a child on safari in the African grasslands is searching for a hippo. Along the way, the child encounters elephants, lions, leopards, chimpanzees, giraffes, flamingos, and zebras, but there's no sign of a hippo! But a closer look will reveal a hidden hippo on every page. Can you find the hippo?

Just wanted to say thanks for these picks (just started subscribing to the blog this week.)

I think we may soon max out our hold requests as I read through the archives!
