When I Woke Up I Was A Hippopotamus By: Tom MacRae and Ross Collins
This is the story of a boy and how he changes into different things during the day. As a hippo he is sluggish and does not want to get up. At school time he is a statue, because he does not want to go to school. His teacher calls him a monkey. Just a cute rhyming book for younger kids. This book would be a great book for a classroom writing lesson. Kids could chose what they are at different times and write about what they do.
I borrowed this from the public library
