Happy Punctuation Day!!!

Every well educated little hippo should know how to use punctuation correctly.  That's why National Punctuation Day is one of my favorite holidays!

You're probably wondering how to celebrate.  I recommend watching this video:

Question marks are my favorite; they sound funny, they're fun to draw, and using them usually gets information.

Meet Schnaubbles

Hippo was out shopping one day when he came across a distinguished-looking young hippopotamus. He saw that he was up for adoption and realized he had saved enough allowance to bring him home!

So he gave the check-out lady a picture of George Washington and she gave him back an Abraham Lincoln coin and let him take his new friend home.

Hippo presented the new hippo to his human who promptly named him "Schnaubbles".

Hippo's friend Elena sent photos of a hippopotamus (begemot) she found grazing on snowflakes in Moscow, Russia.

Note from Hippo: It may be short-sleeve weather in America, but Russia is on the other side of the world so it's cold and snowy there.

He wonders if they'll migrate over here when the seasons change.
