My Review
This book was the perfect one to share the first week of school with my 2nd graders. Sadly, bullying is something that must be addressed quickly at the beginning of the year as rules and expectations are being established in a classroom. 

I'm so glad that I had a copy of Kendra and Her Hippo Stompers Save the Day by Author Clever Jenny. It had so many things that my students could relate to. It touches on the feelings of not only the child being bullied but the child who may be doing the bullying. I feel it's important that children see the viewpoint of other children from both angles of this situation. We had a long discussion after we read the story and my kids were able to understand and relate to what happened in the story.

Another fun thing I found on Clever Jenny's website was the fun worksheets that you can use with your own kids or a teacher in the classroom. They enjoyed doing the color page, word search, and the maze. When they took the worksheets home, I know that more discussion was held about this book that I read to them. I had several parents emailing me and asking about the book that their kids kept talking about.

Overall, Kendra and Her Hippo Stompers Save the Day needs to be a part of every early elementary classroom's discussion on bullying. It has beautiful illustrations that kids love but more importantly, its message was easily understood and remembered.

****Meet Author Clever Jenny****

Clever Jenny spent her childhood with her nose in a book. She often struggled to pick the perfect book in bookstores and libraries because every book she saw was perfect (kudos to all the creators in the world).

Her passion for storytelling began as a young child when she established a deep connection with conveying feelings and imagination on paper. However, she never imagined sharing her creativity with the world.

Today, Clever Jenny writes stories for the young and young at heart. She hopes her stories will find a place in readers' hearts and inspire them to create a bright tomorrow.
