I often feel like the armadillo. People eventually notice and include the hippopotamus, and the armadillo is left completely out of the group.

Maybe Boynton's Best

This is a fun one to read. Lots of great rhymes and a plot(?) that centers around how some creatures get left out because they are so hard to rhyme. A great ending, too!

But not the hippotamus

Another great Sandra Boynton book. I love the illustration in But not the hippotamus

Feeling Left Out?

Everyone is doing lots of different things
But not the hippopotamus
Will the others find a way to include it?


Very cute book.
