An African hippo gets his foot stuck in the mud, and lots of animals try to help, but even the biggest and strongest is unable. The hippo needs your help to get free.
Your child will delight in this enhanced ebook, which makes them the hero of the story (you input their name and gender in the beginning). The moral of the story is learning to use your intellect (and engineering knowledge) rather than brawn to solve this sloshy, mucky problem.
There's some information about the concept of leverage, a group game and a comprehension questionnaire at the end, which may interest educators.
Stuck in the mud Alyssa to the rescue
I really love this book. I like how you can put your name in and it shows up in the story. I also like how everyone tries to get Kibaru out of the mud. Neither the ostrich, oryx, hippo, or elephant were strong enough to free him. They had to call me for help 😻 ~ Alyssa, age 10
