I had ordered this book to go along with a 1st Grade Science lesson on air that I had written and needed to teach for my Elementary Science Methods class.
After I received the book, I found that it would have been perfect to go along with the lesson; unfortunately, it took so long for me to receive the book that I had to find a substitute when it came to be time to teach the lesson.
Since I plan on teaching Upper Elementary grades after I graduate and receive my licensure, I will not have much of a chance to teach this particular lesson again.
Publishers Weekly, 1987-10-09 In a simple and humorous easy-reading adventure, Hippo, an experienced parachutist, encourages his friends Cat, Pig and Dog to try free-fall skyjumping. They are nervous, but Hippo reassures them, and the three friends jump from Hippo's plane. All goes well until they notice that they are drifting toward a pond chock-full of eager alligators! What will they do? Suddenly, the table, around which all the hungry gators are gathered, begins to shake and rise. The table is really Hippo's broad back! ``Three cheers for Hippo!'' The illustrations are funny and cartoony in Sadler's distinctive style. Though this is perhaps not as imaginative as his Hooray for Snail!, it will please and engage beginning readers. Ages 4-8. (October)
