You Can't Move a Hippo
You Can't Move a Hippo by Michael Catchpool is the cutest book about manners! A hippo is sleeping on a bridge and a lion and several animals want to get by, but the hippo won't move. They try roaring at the hippo, pushing the hippo, and bouncing the hippo. When none of it works, a little mouse whispers something in the hippo's ear. The hippo moves off the bridge. The other animals ask "What did you say???" The mouse turns back and says with a smile, "Please." The book is delightfully illustrated and well written. It is fun to read along with having a wonderful moral.
