Here Comes Truck Driver Hippo

Astra. (A Little Hippo Story). Nov. 2022. 32p. Tr $12.99. ISBN 9781635925890.
PreS-K–Little Hippo loves to pretend, and in the third book in this charming series, the game is to be a truck driver. He wants to pick up and deliver a load of sand to the lion cubs. He encounters several obstacles that his friends in the savanna help him solve. Brightly colored illustrations perfectly match the exuberant energy of Little Hippo, and young readers will enjoy his persistence in ensuring that the cubs have a fun place to play.
VERDICT A good choice for libraries seeking out books for their very youngest patrons. Little Hippo’s game of pretend is spot-on and deeply engaging.
