Holly's Day at the Pool by Benson Shum - ADVISABLE

Shum, Benson Holly's Day at the Pool.  PICTURE BOOK.  Disney, 2017.  $17.

Holly the hippopotamus is a little afraid of going to the pool.  Her mind is full of “what if…” disasters.  When her little sister’s favorite toy falls in, however, Holly is off to the rescue.  Learning that even snapping turtles are not something to be afraid of. 

As expect of someone who is an animator for Disney, the illustrations in this book brim with personality.  As long as you can ignore the idea that Holly is a hippo who is afraid of the public swimming pool, you’ll thoroughly enjoy the story also.
