The two hippos teach lessons about friendship, respect, and courtesy, and the delightful stories lead kids to their own conclusions about the hippos' misbehavior. Bright color washes added to expressive line drawings gently convey the warmth between Martha and George.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
