Books are awesome! Reading’s free...Let’s go to the library!


Hippo is looking for a new book. There are so many to choose from. There are books about pirates, bears, superheroes, and more! And as Hippo looks around the library, she imagines the stories inside each book. How can Hippo choose just one? Maybe she doesn’t have to...Sue Fliess’s sing-song text combines with Mike Laughead’s adorable illustrations for a fun celebration of finding just the right books.
