      A story of a boy with a very active imagination who finds himself being a lot of different things throughout the day a monster, a hippo, a robot, etc

    2. Laura on said:

      A cute read with the little ones There were a few chuckles, and the rambunctious, lively protagonist is a bit like them and loves to pretend Great illustrations This wasn t one of the most memorable that we ve brought home from the library lately, but it s still sweet.

    3. Miranda on said:

      It had the potential to be great, but it was annoying when they described typical parenting or instruction from the teacher as telling the kid off, then the kid would tell off the kid or parents That s not something I want my daughter to start doing, so I m not a fan of this book

      The phrase Tell them off doesn t translate very well across the Atlantic.

      When I Woke Up I Was a Hippopotamus, written by Tom MacRae and illustrated by Ross Collins, is the charming story of a little boy who wakes up one morning feeling like a big hippopotamus who can hardly move and just doesn t want to get out of bed As the day goes on, he always seems to be a bit out of step with how he should be feeling in that moment, and each feeling is represented by a different animal or object.Read the rest of my review at 5 Minutes for Mom.

      This is a descent story I would most likely have this in my classroom The best thing about the story, in my opinion, is the fact that the kid had so much imagination His imagination could inspire my students to be creative and imagine things as well The story line wasn t the greatest, but the use of creativity of the boy and the rhyming was great.

    9. Cassie on said:

      This is a fun book to keep children on their toes of what possibly the little boy could wake up and be It shows that your dreams can be so big and encourages you to dream as big as you can imagine You could do an activity with the children after reading about what they would want to be if they could wake up and be anything.

      At different times of the day, the small boy imagines himself to be a host of different creatures First thing in the morning he is a sleepy hippo, at breakfast he s a robot, later he s a statue, a monkey, a monster, a rocket, but his noisy giant Is the last straw, and turns his parents into dragons Finally, when He is himself he has the best time of all.

    11. Sandy on said:

      A funny, cute story about how everyone can change into something else depending on their moods Yea, when it s time to go to work I can be a unmoving statue but I can never be a rocket when I leave work How is that

      I LOVED reading this book to my 4 year old It s perfectly set up to really get into with voices and movement It was the first book I read to him as opposed to one of his parents , and it broke the ice PERFECTLY for the change in routine

    13. Kiana Sims on said:

      This is a great book to read to kids about being creative and thinking outside of the box I used this book on an imaging lesson and covered up the pages to encourage kids to become the illustrators and make their own pictures in their heads.

      I get the idea of where this book was trying to go but in my opinion not sure it fully got there.

    17. Jessica Vu on said:

      This is a fun book and good for imaging Cover the front of the book and have students describe what they think the pics will look like.

      Having just read a book on child nutrition, I kept thinking this kid needs some healthy foods I was thinking it was hi attitude, not his imagination that was the problem Enjoyed it
