    Hope the Hip Hippo is a children┬┐s picture book with bright, ani

    Hope the Hip Hippo is a children’s picture book with bright, animated art that follows Hope, a pink hippo, who has hip dysplasia through her treatment. Hope loves to run, play, and dance, but her hips hurt until she goes to Dr. Kindly to get them fixed.
    This book does a great job of keeping the story line reassuring and simple enough for a child to understand. I love the little details, like the way Hope is smiling when she gets an x-ray because x-rays don’t hurt, and how she wakes up after surgery in a hip spica cast and says “I’m stuck!” because she can’t move her legs. At the end of the story, Hope’s hips are better and she’s back to dancing.
    This book was written by two mothers who have children who went through treatment for hip dysplasia with hip spica casts, and it shows in the thoughtful way it was written and illustrated. I highly recommend this book to families with a young child who needs treatment involving a hip spica cast.
