Book Review - Fiona Helps a Friend

Yesterday I received a box from Zonderkidz with three fun, new books for me to review - today I'm very happy to let you know about one of them (and will share the others over the next couple days.) The book for today is - Fiona Helps a Friend by Richard Cowdrey and published by Zonderkidz.

Favorite Features -

  • I love the illustrations - full of color, detail, imagination, and fun - children, and adults, will love the illustrations.
  • The story will encourage important conversations about taking the time to notice how others are feeling and choosing to invest your time in helping others as well.
  • I love the story of the real Fiona the Hippo from the Cincinnati Zoo - definitely read this to the children you love.
Zonderkidz says; "Join your favorite hippo, Fiona, the adorable internet sensation from the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens, and her lovable animal friends as they try to help Matilda find her missing laugh. This fun and whimsical follow-up to the New York Times bestselling Fiona the Hippo is the perfect read-aloud for fans of Fiona (and hippos) everywhere!

Fiona cannot figure out why the zoo seems so quiet as she wanders around, saying hello to all her friends. When she realizes she hasn’t heard Matilda the Kookaburra’s laughter in a while, Fiona and the other animals set out to find the missing laugh—and run right into a wonderful box of lost and found items. Their search turns into a dress-up party filled with laughter—and a great idea on how to get Matilda’s laugh back!

Fiona Helps a Friend teaches children:

  • About friendship, helping others, and the power of laughter
  • Love and support from others can make a big difference

This adorable picture book is great for readers ages 4-8."

Fiona Helps a Friend is certain to become a favorite storybook - and will be well-read for sure! If you are looking for a new book to enjoy with the children you love, get this one!
