School Library Journal - 12/01/2022 PreS-K—Little Hippo loves to pretend, and in the third book in this charming series, the game is to be a truck driver. He wants to pick up and deliver a load of sand to the lion cubs. He encounters several obstacles that his friends in the savanna help him solve. Brightly colored illustrations perfectly match the exuberant energy of Little Hippo, and young readers will enjoy his persistence in ensuring that the cubs have a fun place to play. VERDICT A good choice for libraries seeking out books for their very youngest patrons. Little Hippo's game of pretend is spot-on and deeply engaging.—Debbie Tanner - Copyright 2022 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
