Our Story

“The more that you read, the more things you will know.
The more you learn, the more places you’ll go.” — Dr. Seuss

Of all the books we sell, our favorite story is our own.

Little Hippo Books is a leading US-based publishing company that specializes in books for children between the ages of 0 and 5. Our mission is to create children’s titles that inspire nurturing reading moments for kids and a lifelong love of books. 

Little Hippo Books Our Story

  Layla McGrath is a Creative Director at
  Little  Hippo Books. For Layla, the journey
  is more personal. "Reading with my parents
  is one of the fondest memories I have of my
  childhood and I wanted all kids to be able to
  have that experience."


Our bright, colorful and beautifully produced books offer a wide variety of title selections from love and family to friendship to sharing to helping. Most recently, we have been producing educational titles to help those who find themselves playing the role of both parent and teacher.

Our products can be found on Amazon, at Walmart, Barnes & Noble and many other retailers. Our goal is to have our books out there expanding horizons, instilling adventure and developing minds.
