Hip and Hop: You Can Do Anything

Publisher: Oxford University Press

All the children are getting ready for the Blueberry Hill bike race except for Hop, the little blue bird. Hip assures that him that if he practises, he’ll be able to do it – even with a few crashes along the way. Inspired by Hip’s helpful rap about working hard for your dreams, Hop tries and tries, and finally wheels his way into first place.

This positive message for little ones about putting in the practice they need to achieve something they really want is always welcome, and Sav Akyuz’s vibrant, big illustration captures Hop’s frustrated and sulky expressions that will be familiar to all parents of kids learning a new skill. Hip the hippo has street style, as well as a healthy dose of caring and wisdom for the little Hop, the bird who never gives up.
