H is for Hanna's Cold Winter #atozchallenge




 Blogging Unit Study ideas using Five in a Row Curriculum Books from A to Z

I am joining literally hundreds of other bloggers to blog through the Alphabet in the month of April (Sunday we get a break!) with a Themed month. This is my first time joining in and I am excited for the challenge.



Hanna was a hippopotamus in the Budapest zoo. Hanna and the other hippos thrived in the warm springs which flowed from the ground. One winter, however, it was so cold that the river froze. There was a war going on, and the people and animals were starving. But the people of Budapest made a plan to save their beloved hippos.

This heartwarming story, based on a true incident that took place during World War II, is beautifully told by Trish Marx. Barb Knutson's charming illustrations magically evoke the faraway place and time.

This lapbook information covered both Hungary and Hippos. I loved how our country and the title of the book both coincided with each other!
We studied the country of Hungary and looked at hippos primarily in this unit study.

  1. What beautiful cover art on this book. This looks like a neat way to entertain and share a different culture.
