The Hippo That Jumped
About the Book
Henry the Hippo wants nothing more than to jump the river like the jumpy tree frogs, but he soon finds his journey to jump may not be as easy as he first hoped. This book aims to teach children the value of effort, determination, and practice through rhythmic, rhyming text that is fun and engaging, with a humorous undertone and overall uplifting message. Children will be taken on Henry’s journey to achieve the dream that at first seemed impossible, but through his strength and perseverance and advice from a monkey, maybe just maybe, Henry will jump.
