My Best Friend is a Hippo Named Boo-Boo Butt!

Book Review

Today the book is hidden at my house. I have never been asked to re-read a book as much as I have been asked to re-read this one. I think the author is a genius for making a book so engaging for young readers without using one picture! Have you read it? It is completely ridiculous and I love it! I'm just tired of telling kids that my best friend is a hippo named "Boo-Boo Butt!"

We have a Reading-Buddy event every month. Older students are paired up with younger to read to and with them. I passed this book from former student to former student who had embarrassed me in the past I knew would get a kick out of it. Soon our school was rocking with laughter.

 It is hidden at my house, but only so I can share it with my 16 year old and her exchange student friend from South Korea. She is finding out what an American sleep-over is like! I think a bedtime story is in order. How about you?

  1. Oh, you've got it! I ordered this book a few weeks ago and Amazon said they shipped it last week but I still don't have it :( I can hardly wait 'cause it just looks SO funny.

  2. I have it sitting on a bookshelf at home. Waiting for a "perfect" set up to read it to the kids.

  3. I've got to get me one. I keep hearing about it.
