#MMBBR #Review #Giveaway #BookTrailer #duckandhippo #thesecretvalentine by #JonathanLondon via #partner @TwoLionsPub & @barbfisch at @blueslipper who provided a #free #reviewcopy


Join Duck, Hippo, and their friends as they uncover their secret valentines!

It’s Valentine’s Day, and something curious is going on. As the birds tweet their love songs, Hippo and his friends Elephant, Pig, and Turtle each receive mysterious, unsigned Valentine’s Day cards. Hippo wonders if his is from Duck; Elephant and Turtle think theirs are from Pig; and Pig dreams that hers is from Turtle. The cards tell the friends to come to the park at four o’clock to meet their valentines—so they’ll find out soon enough! As the clock ticks away, the friends wonder—and dream—about their valentines and make special preparations. But when they arrive…SURPRISE!

This Valentine’s Day might not go exactly the way they expected, but one thing is certain: being friends with Duck and Hippo is always a special treat!



Duck and Hippo: The Secret Valentine (Duck and Hippo #4)
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A darling book about friendship, fun and Valentine's Day. I adore the characters and how brilliantly illustrated they are, as they come to life on the page. This book highlights how doing something special (and as a surprise) for those you love makes your heart happy and brings joy to those you love!!! Your children will love reading this book both solo and as listening to is as a read-a-long. It is the sweetest book ever and one you will want to read over and over again!!
