Various and Sundry
HERE COMES DOCTOR HIPPO: A LITTLE HIPPO STORY by Jonathan London with illustrations by Gilles Eduar. Boyds Mills Press, 2012.
Little Hippo wants to play doctor with the animals who share his habitat. However, the giraffe has a slurpy tongue, the croc's mouth is positively frightful, and the lion, well, let's not even go there. Lots of humor but plenty to learn along with the young doctor as he interacts with animals. <554>
LOTS OF LAMBS: A TOUCH, FEEL, FLIP, AND FUN BOOK by Laura Numeroff with illustrations by Lynn Musinger. Houghton Mifflin, 2012.
Kids will love interacting with this movable book. Lambs frolic in the woods, fly kites, put on a play, and wear themselves out! <555>
OH, WHAT A SURPRISE! by Suzanne Bloom. Boyds Mills Press, 2012.
Bear is working feverishly on a gift as is Goose. The excitable young fox wonders if the gifts might be for him, but they seem not his size. So, he decides he will make his own gift: literally. He wraps himself in a box and presents himself to his two friends on Christmas morning. He is in for a surprise as well. <556>
