And the parent of a young special- needs child, recorded 'Guess What? There's a Hippopotamus on the Hospital Roof Eating Cake' to reassure during numerous hospital visits. 

....................................................................................................................................................................................

I didn't want to go to hospital. My big sister said, 'My hippo knows all about hospitals. He can go with you.'

The hippopotamus helps and reassures during hospital visits, demystifying procedures and comforting overnight.

Ronald McDonald House reading
