Hippo Henry and Friends 

Written for Hutto by a Hutto Resident. #hippohenry

The founder of iHutto.com is an author of coloring storybooks. From her love of Hutto, “Hippo Henry and Friends” was written especially to benefit our community. With the help of advertisers, promotional events, online marketing, and more, the book is made available to organizations throughout Hutto. The goal? To encourage reading and imagination while making sure that no child ever pays for our book. Giving back to the community is just a bonus! 


Hippo Henry and Friends” is currently available on Amazon as well a Barnes and Noble. 50% of online proceeds are donated to the Hutto Resource Center to help fight hunger in our local community and 50% donated to Hutto ISD to help pay lunch balances.

Together, we can build a better community.

Learn How Your Business Can Help Through Advertising

Without contributors to our cause, we couldn't do what we do. Our goal is to make sure every child receives a copy of our books, even if they can't afford to buy it. On top of that, 100% of online revenue from Amazon sales are donated to local teachers and to help pay school lumch balances. Advertisers help with print and shipping costs so that we can deliver our books to local area schools, children's hospitals, non-profits, and beyond. "Hippo Henry and Friends" was only the beginning of our mission.
