About this ebook

 An African hippo gets his foot stuck in the mud, and lots of animals try to help, but even the biggest and strongest is unable. The hippo needs your help to get free. 

Your child will delight in this ebook, which makes them the hero of the story (you can say their name and gender as you read). The imagery of the hero is androgynous, meaning it could be a boy or a girl. This is the non-enhanced edition of the ebook, as per the requirements of the platform you are purchasing it on.

The moral of the story is learning to use your intellect (and engineering knowledge) rather than brawn to solve this sloshy, mucky problem. 

There's some information about the concept of leverage, a group game and a comprehension questionnaire at the end, which may interest educators.

Stuck in the mud, Alyssa to the rescue! I really love this book. I liked how you can put your name in and it shows up in the story. I also like how everyone tries to get Kifaru out of the mud. Neither the ostrich, oryx, hippo, or elephant were strong enough to free him. They had to call me for help :) ~ Alyssa, age 10 You, Kifaru and the Mud Problem can be purchased from iTunes for iBooks as an interactive ebook where you input the child’s name and gender. The book is then customized for the child. If you purchase it as an ebook from other sources such as Amazon or Kobo the character is androgynous in the illustrations and could be either male or female. You then simply read your child’s name in the indicated places. At the end of the book there is educational material to teach about leverage and a series of comprehension questions for parents and educators. The illustrations are colorful and appealing. The text has a repeated description that adds to the flow of the story and makes things fun for the reader. Overall this is a great read aloud picture book for the young reader. *****Reviewed for Xtreme-Delusions*****
