Do you like Penguins? Penguins can be very interesting. In Penguins there are lots of facts, some amazing facts are that some Penguins lay at lest 2 eggs and only one survives, a group of Penguins that live together is called a colony. There are 17 different species (kinds) of Penguins! The smallest Penguin is called the Fairy Penguin the biggest Penguin is the Emperor Penguin!
I like Penguins because it teaches me about their lives and what they look like. I love all of the Penguins because they are all unique and special.
I would recommend this book to people who like Penguins, animals, and facts!

I bought this book for my elderly mom. She always liked to read books and the newspaper but now is having difficulty reading and understanding a story since she has dementia. She has been able to read and understand this book.

I am very impressed with the National Geographic Readers. I think they are perfect for bringing information to young children at a level that is appropriate for them. They are very interested in the world around them and love non-fiction. These books have wonderful pictures and are well written.

Great job again National Geographic! Tons of interesting facts about penguins and types /species of penguins. We read this at bedtime with our 2, 7, 9 year old. We learned a lot as adults from this book and it is a lovely addition to the rest of our children's National Geographic books! We hope to get them all in the next couple years!
