My Review of Duck and Hippo Give Thanks
Duck and Hippo Give Thanks is part of the Duck and Hippo series where two animals with very different personalities are the best of friends. Duck and Hippo invite all their other friends to a “good old-fashioned” Thanksgiving. Of course, Hippo knows exactly what this entails: pumpkin pie, apple pie, and acorn squash. Duck, on the other hand, knows how hard Hippo has worked on making Thanksgiving special. She wants Hippo to feel special, so she tells her friends to make a surprise dish for Hippo. None of the surprises are “good old-fashioned” Thanksgiving foods, but Hippo realizes that Thanksgiving isn’t really about the food…it’s about friends.
This is a very sweet book that you and your children will enjoy reading together this holiday season.
