Description


How dull, to be one hippo all alone...
Until the one calls two other hippos on the phone.
Soon three more hippos are at the door,
Bringing along another four.


Before the night is through, a houseful of hippos (and one beast) has joined the one hippo for a boisterous bash.

All through the hippo night,
Hippos play with great delight.
But at the hippo break of day,
The hippos all must go away.



In clusters of nine, eight, seven, six, and so on, the hippos depart, finally leaving the one hippo alone once more, [missing] the other forty-four.

The well-loved Sandra Boynton wrote this tribute to silliness in 1977, inspiring generations of the very young to learn to count. Lively, cute new illustrations complement this edition, with big numbers (one through nine, and nine through one) boldly placed on the corner of each page.

The sturdy board book will withstand lots of eager counting fingers, and maybe even a berserk hippo or two.

Why Our Experts Love It


These short, hilarious books are perfectly suited to toddler tastes, with their small size, few words, cheerful colors, funny jokes, and silly animals!

They combine rhythm, rhyme, and humor so that toddler parents get the most out of reading to their children!
  • Reading with your child is a great way to spend quality time. Reading is an important activity to foster language skills and help your child learn new information. Long before a child can speak, an infant is learning the melodies and sounds of language.
  • They are learning to understand words and pair pictures of objects with the name of the object. In addition to language skills, reading with your child helps improve their attention and builds curiosity. We want children of all ages to hear adult, complex sentences so alternate reading a book as you typically would (reading all the written words) with the tips described below.
  • 2-3 year olds – read the story as written but ask questions along the way to ensure that your child understands what is happening in the story.  This also allows them to be active “readers”
  • 3-4 year olds – ask your child to tell you about the pictures/predict the story first.  Then read the words on the page. This is a great way to help foster their story-telling abilities.
  • 4-5 year olds at this age children begin to gain interest in the letters of the alphabet and the sounds they make. Point to some of the words as you read to support this interest. At the end of a book, you and your child can make up a different ending OR try and add to the story.
