I received a free copy of this product as a member of Zondervan's Z Blog Squad in exchange for writing a review.  All opinions are my own.

Fiona the Hippo was born 6 weeks prematurely at the Cincinnati Zoo and is the smallest hippo ever to survive. Her story of perseverance has served as an inspiration to people from all around the world and now you can follow her latest adventures in this third title in her picture book series:

We were unaware of the whole Fiona story until this past Christmas, when we received this book to review. 

I'd been a little disappointed with that title just because I kept waiting for the animals to share the story of Jesus's birth somewhere along the way, but that never happened.

It was still an adorable book, but just fell a bit short for me, for a Christmas title in our house.

However, I feel much more positively about this latest title!

Without any holiday issues for me to stumble over, I'm able to just snuggle up with my own little critter and enjoy the rhyming nature of the text and adorable illustrations that accompany this playful bedtime story.

This is definitely one that I encourage you to get to add in to your bedtime read-aloud collection. It's one that will be enjoyed for years, from birth until I'd say at least ten and you won't be able to keep the smiles away as you share the sweet story with your own little bloat. (Did you know a group of hippos is called a bloat? How fun is that?)

Grab a copy here and enjoy seeing your kids fall asleep with Fiona's zoo friends!
