Tongue-in-cheek humor for your first/second grader
I read this book countless times throughout my life, and never tire of the subtle hilarity of these two hippo friends. In one memorable scene, Martha admits that she doesn't like to eat split pea soup, she just loves to make it - and poor George has been eating it just to be polite. Easy to read, easy to love, and easy to brighten your day, George and Martha (and their entire series) will enhance your worldview (seriously!) and entertain your early reader.
