ALA Booklist
Friends Hippo and Rabbit star in three short tales rendered comic-book style, in uncomplicated panels with dialogue in word balloons. In "Eat," Rabbit tries to give Hippo healthy vegetables to eat for breakfast instead of a cheeseburger. The two friends hit the playground in "Swing," with Rabbit struggling mightily to push the much larger Hippo. Then, in "Sleep," night noises scare Hippo, who wants to share Rabbit's bed. This is a Level 1 Scholastic Reader, with a low word-count and simple sentences suitable for newly independent readers. Children will enjoy the sight of Rabbit trying to push Hippo in the swing, laugh at what Hippo does with Rabbit's vegetables, and relate to how the two friends react to such things as lightning and thunder in the night. The simple art provides just enough detail to indicate setting. The book can be used as a supplemental reader in the classroom, but the stories are fun enough for recreational reading at home.
