Once Upon A Monday

This weeks book is Hippos Go Berserk by Sandra Boynton.

Hippos Go Berserk is a simple, colorful, couting book. Page one starts out with one hippo and from there adds hippos in nurmerical order. The book hits it's climax when all the hippos are gathered and they "Go Berserk!". After the party, the hippos slowly start to leave until again there is only one hippo left.

Claire's (5 1/2 months) thinks the hippos are really funny and cute! I can hold the book because it's small. I even got a hippo stuffed animal to go with it! Thanks Carl and Brita!

Megan and Eric think that we like the way the book progresses and then regresses with the number of hippos. It's a good way of introducing numbers and counting without being boring. It's a small, infant friendly book with sturdy pages. Your child should not be able to demolish the book at this point. The illustrations are cute and enjoyable. We recommend this book.

M & E Rating - 5 out of 5 stars
