A great choice for little ones to share with a caregiver. The story and the music are catching and fun while demonstrating loyalty and friendship.

An excellent storytime selection. ( )

Basically, a short book about a penguin explaining his undying (kinda stalkerish, I must say) affection for a hippo.

Throughout the book, the hippo looks totally dumbstruck by all this attention.

If you're coming at it from a different angle, I guess it might be kinda creepy (the scene with the penguin shining a flashlight at the sleeping hippo comes to mind), but as my nieces know this is Not Really Appropriate Behaviour that just, to them, makes it funnier.

Found the song (downloadable... somewhere) to be a little uninspired though. *shrugs* ( )

Similar to Snuggle Puppy, this is a first person I Love You book. Who can resist a pleading penguin who wants to be your very own from now on? ( )
