Do Hippos Brush Their Teeth?

Etta Kaner

Jenna Piechota

A funny exploration of how animals keep clean and healthy

Do tortoises take vitamins? Do badgers wash their hands after using the toilet? This eagerly anticipated fourth and final installment of the Do Animals? series raises these questions and more about how animals take care of their bodies—much like the ways people maintain their hygiene!

From lava lizards that do push-ups, to giraffes that clean their noses with their tongues (yuck!), this book is full of interesting and unexpected ways that animals keep their bodies in top condition.

Written in an interactive question-and-answer format perfect for reading out loud, this follow-up to bestsellers Do Frogs Drink Hot Chocolate?, Do Lizards Eat Ice Cream?, and Do Fire Ants Fight Fires? encourages inquiry and discussion. Silly scenarios and comic illustrations will invite readers to learn about animal adaptations and STEM in an engaging and accessible way.
