This lapbook includes printable activities based on the book Hanna’s Cold Winter by Trish Marx.

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. 

Thanks to Debbie Palmer and Wende for helping me with this Hanna’s Cold Winter Lapbook.
