The Hippo Who Did Gymnastics
BOOK DESCRIPTION -
Nobody in gymnastics class would have ever imagined a hippo joining them, but that's just what happens when Humphrey becomes the newest student. How can a hippo do gymnastics? The balance beam, the uneven bars, the floor exercises -- he's too heavy and too big! He might even fall on his head! But Humphrey just might have hidden talents that nobody expects.
This inspiring story of outsiders trying to fit in reminds gymnasts and non-gymnasts alike that sometimes all it takes is believing in yourself.
The story is told from a dog's perspective as the other characters are all animals.
Very nice book and also good illustrations that are very different but in a unique way.
I do love that fact that this book is showing children that they should not judge someone by their appearance.It is a lovely read for your kids but not the best of books to be honest a little lacking in some areas.
More of age 4+ are does have humour that little ones will not get,as my daughter is coming upto 5 years its was nice to share a few giggles together!
