Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Who knows why a belly button would be of interest to hippos, but Sandra Boynton has created an entire book around hippos and their belly buttons. Little hippos have a special word for belly button—Bee Bo, perhaps because they can't say the two words correctly. In the summer hippos head off to the beach so they can show off their beautiful belly buttons to the world. After all they are round and cute and funny. Beach days are spent relaxing, eating grapes and getting some rest. There is something else hippos love: balloons because they look like they have belly buttons too. If you think this is all pretty silly then it gets even sillier when the hippos sing the belly button song, but keep in mind it is only sung in summer because in winter belly buttons hide. Kids who wonder about belly buttons may find this riff amusing. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot

I work at a daycare center with 1 and 2 yr olds and they all love this book. Some books I can get tired of reading to the children over and over but this is one book that both the children and I enjoy reading. It is definitly a must read for children!

A riveting read by my son's favorite author going behind the scenes of the Hippo world and the importance of the "Be-Bo". A great add to our Boynton Collection!

This book is SO CUTE and very FUN to read out loud! The illustrations are wonderful and include a baby hippo that catches babies attention. It is still a great bedtime story because it ends on a soft note by telling your "bee boo" good-bye. Which by niece(2nd niece to read this too)does every time.

The "Belly Button Book" is a fun rhyme about Hippos and that cute little button on their middle. It captivates the attention of babies and is a wonderful book for the budding reader.

My 11 month old LOVES this story, as he does all of our Boynton books. He smiles with delight when we read the book and tickle his "BeBo!" (belly button). I have yet to find a book by Sandra Boynton that wasn't an absolute delight. I'm sure we'll treasure this one for quite a while.

The rhythm and rhyme of the words engage babies at a very early age teaching them the joys of reading. The BEE BOO has become part of our culture with little ones therefore all children need to read it. All Sandra Boynton books are wonderful. Your child will wear it out.

I like to give Sandra Boynton board books as gifts at baby showers-new moms have told me that this one is a favorite!

This adorable book by Sandra Boynton captures the charm of the very young and captivates the youngest"reader". It chronicles the many belly buttons that are seen by adorable creatures at the beach and in other places. This book is a perfect early read aloud for infants and toddlers. It will be happily read again and again! Enjoy it. It is a must have for all tiny starters, and the board book format makes it last through all the little readers in the family.

I got this book because my husband thinks that belly buttons are really fun, and he would enjoy reading this book to our son. I was wondering what this book was about when I say the title, but it was very imaginative and inventive. I love it.

This is one of our daughters (and my husbands) favorites! It is a funny, engaging book and I would recommend any of her books as a gift that keeps on giving! She has played and read these books over and over since 9 months of age! Now at 19 months she is practically reading the books completely by herself she loves them so much.

We got this book for our 18 month old daughter, who loves to seek out belly buttons. It's one of the ones she asks for most at bedtime. She even calls the book 'Bee bo'. A funny, cute little book that toddlers will love.

Sandra Boynton has written another great book for the graham cracker set. Be bo is exactly the word my daughter used when she was taking inventory. The illustrations are fun, and so are the words. All of our kids have asked for Sanda's books to be read again and again. This is a stocking stuffer, she will love it!

This book is great for little folks - short, cute illustrations, and sturdy! But it's enjoyable for adults, too - I laughed out loud the first time I read it. Although my daughter hasn't discovered her belly button yet, I'm sure that once she does, she'll enjoy this book almost as much as I do!
