This lovely new title looks at the lives of hippos - from their birth to growing up, how they feed, grow, hunt, rest, and clean. Glorious, large colour photographs show the hippo at every stage of its life. Simple, engaging text allows young readers to understand a hippo's life. There is also information about the threats that hippos face in the wild and how we can help them to survive in the future.
The author, Patricia Kendell, writes material to help children understand why wildlife is in danger and what they can do to help. She is also a part-time Education Officer with WWF-UK.
The consultant, Karen Paolillo, was the first woman to obtain a Professional Safari Guide Licence in Zimbabwe. She is the founder of the Turgwe Hippo Trust, a non-profit-making organization for the conservation of hippos.
