Hippos and Miros
For years my daughter's favorite animal was the hippopotamus (Greek for river horse.) After many youtube videos on the subject, particularly of Imani, the baby hippo, I have grown to like them, too.
Did you know that a group of hippopotamuses is called a bloat? Or that their closest living relatives are whales and porpoises? But hippos are so much meaner...
This hippo is featured on an Etsy treasury by Vonlenska Vintage.
And then I just have to share Lucy's Miro drawing. Once again, the five year old knocks my socks off!
