Description
A box of animal crackers comes alive for an imaginative young boy who wonders what he would do if he had a real hippopotamus, or maybe a crocodile, or even a kangaroo. Well, right away, he decides he would give his hippopotamus to his more and share his anaconda with dad. He even remembers his brother and sister, to whom he gleefully gives his rhinoceros and elephant. Best of all for the young animal-cracker fan is the surprise that awaits him when the box is empty!

This colorful celebration of childhood imagination and creativity also teaches the joy of sharing and the warmth of family, providing positive. authentic images of contemporary Hispanic families. Inspired by the author's own active imagination from his childhood days, I Had a Hippopotamus is filled with warm, colorful paintings of an eclectic array of creatures.
