Bedtime Story: Duck and Hippo in the Rainstorm by Jonathan London

Read for: Children's Book Challenge
Synopsis: "Get ready for a rainy-day adventure with Duck and Hippo!

Duck and Hippo may be completely different, but they are best friends. When playful Duck invites careful Hippo to go for a walk in the rain, they have trouble sharing Duck’s umbrella. But Duck and Hippo won’t let that stop them. Soon they are puddle-jumping and sailing down the river! Until…WHOOOSH! A terrible wind sends the umbrella flying up, up, up into the air, with one friend holding on. What will Duck and Hippo do now? Jonathan London’s charming text and Andrew Joyner’s delightful art bring to life two lovable friends in this fun new series."

My Review: This is a cute book for those spring rainstorms. Duck and Hippo are fun characters that kids will enjoy. The story is a fun and at times silly one that also introduces spatial positioning and concepts. We enjoyed reading this one and Munchkin got a kick out of the silly things Duck and Hippo were doing in the rain.
My Rating: I really like the classic feel to this book, the illustrations are simple yet fun and the story is also simple yet fun. We give it a rating of Three Paws.
Good Night! Sweet Dreams!
