Inspiring Children to Share

An adorable, imaginative hippo dreams of going to the moon! 


Skipping to his own beat, Bentley the hippo is stopped in his trails when he is "clunked" on the head with a banana thrown by Jaxon, a silly monkey.  Jaxon doesn't know how to share or how to be a good friend.

  • Instead of saying hello, he throws bananas!

  • Instead of kindly sharing his food, he throws bananas!

  • Instead of saying goodbye, he throws bananas!

Luckily for Jaxon, Bentley takes the time to teach him a valuable lesson on how to share and what it means to be a true friend.  When Jaxon realizes how good it feels when his new friend, Bentley shares, he can't stop himself from showing kindness and sharing too!

A perfect lesson-in-disguise for children of all ages.

A must-have book for home and classrooms.

Be prepared to fall in love with this bubbly hippo!
