Never Babysit the Hippopotamuses! book. Sure to evoke giggles, especially from children.

Babysitting hippopotamuses leads to wacky events and unruly incidents. Kiddie book with no page numbers.

You should never babysit hippopotamuses unless you follow the rules in this book! . I enjoyed reading "Never Babysit the Hippopotamuses", to my four year old nephew. He really enjoyed the wacky chain of events in this book. This book enables a small child to really use their imagination. At the end of the story, you can ask the child, if they would rather babysit the Hippo's or their next door neighor the Monkeys? We both liked the colorful illustrations. I would highly recommend this book.

What if you were a small boy-say, a rather slender-looking itting a couple of hippos who behaved like rambunctious children? That's the slight idea here, but it's developed into a book that will amuse kids with its exagg.

What if you were a small boy-say, a rather slender-looking itting a couple of hippos who behaved like rambunctious children? That's the slight idea here, but it's developed into a book that will amuse kids with its exaggerations of their own behavior, plus some incongruities special to hippos (& play leapfrog with them, they can be hard to jump over. Don't play horsey either. They always want you to be the horsey'')

PreSchool-Grade 2-This story is built around the cautionary refrain of the title, which is echoed throughout. It is sure to evoke giggles, especially from children who may have been the subjects of such warnings themselves. Dancing, leap frog, football, and wrestling are not recommended.

You can read book The Hippopotamus by Stephen Fry in our library for absolutely free. I am very touched by your generosity. I have never read the Four Quartets before, although we did The Waste Land for GCSE which I enjoyed enormously, so I am looking forward very much to reading and understanding these new poems. Are they connected at all to Beethoven’s quartets, I wonder? My favourite poet is Wordsworth at the moment.

You should never babysit hippopotamuses unless you follow the rules in this book!
This was my fave book as a child and it read one I needed in my teacher library
I absolutely love this book my 4th grade teacher wrote it but upon arrival its been written in on the cover and inside.
My daughter craved this book in preschool- she brought it home for reading homework as much as possible. We loved the lively humor expressed both through the text and the illustrations. Especially the small, pictorial nods aimed at hippo life (e.g. "Pachyderm Skin Conditioner" in the bathroom, a "Hippo Hop" album cover)! Anyway, as the title suggests, babysitting the hippos is one adventure after another. This book is not too fast or too slow, and the pics will get kids talking. Great for an early reader, too. Interest will hold up until second grade. Copyright 1993.
Imagine the difficulties in babysitting two hippopotamuses and trying to get them to go to bed. You have to deal with games, stories, bath time, pajamas, and ... the hippos being afraid of the dark.

"Never Babysit the Hippopotamuses" by Doug Johnson is a fun book and a quick read for bedtime reading to your toddler.
Fabulous book. The students I read it to loved it.
I was once a student at Armin Jahr Elementary School, in Mr. Doug Johnson's 4th grade class (the author of this book). One day, we began our math class at the end of the day, as per usual. It was a Friday, and I was motivated as ever to finish my math. I finished it in 15 minutes, thus putting me far ahead of the ending time for the day. I double-checked my work and put it away in my desk. I then pulled out a hard back fiction novel and began reading it. About a page into it, Mr. Johnson noticed and called out across the room, "Sean, what are you doing?" I replied, "Reading, Mr. Johnson." Strangely, he asked me, "Why?" I closed my book for a moment and said, "Because I am done with math." He then asked, "This is math class. Are you done?" I smiled and nodded, saying, "Yes, I am. I double checked my work and think I got it right." He then shook his head, smiled back, and said, "Then put your head down." I have to say, as a kid, I felt pretty hurt by that. I asked him why, and he said, "This is math class, not reading. If you're done with your work, then you put your head down and be quiet."

Another student in the class, Casey Mussman, blurted out something a 4th grader shouldn't in my defense. He ended up in major trouble over it, but I though it neat two young students, knew better than Mr. Johnson on how to foster the minds of children.

I've never felt so slapped in the face as a child, especially with parents which always encouraged me to read, write, paint, or research as much as I could. That night, I went home and asked to be home schooled by my parents. I told them why, and they immediately enrolled me with the Calvert School. Some years later, at 25, I've been on Embry Riddle Aeronautical University's Dean's List for 8 semesters in a row. I've won three awards as a budding science fiction writer and just launched my own magazine.

So, Mr. Johnson - I kept my head up. I did everything you told me not to.

Veni, vidi, vici.

I hope you all consider that when thinking to support this book and its author.
