About the Book:

It’s Fiona the hippo’s very first Christmas, and the zoo is sparkling with holiday spirit. When the adorable little hippo asks her friends, “What’s Christmas?” they set out to show her all the wonders and excitement of the season.

My Review:
Thanks Zondervan for sending me this book for free in exchange for an honest review.  I was not paid for this and all opinions expressed are 100% my own.  

I think Fiona the hippo is a very adorable character that reminds me of why I love making things special for my own children.  Fiona finds that Christmas is about loving others.  It is a fun story that walks you through Fiona's first for Christmas from the star on top of the tree to playing in the snow!  Fiona gets a stocking but realizes that a new koala at the zoo didn't get a present and learns to share! 

I am surprised again with this Zondervan story as I don't see anything pointing to Christ for Christmas in this one.  I like the story I just wish the animals were super excited for Christmas because they get to celebrate JESUS!
