Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1—Colorful collages depict plump penguins performing a plethora of penguiny pastimes—tobogganing into the ocean, cuddling for warmth, honking to attract a mate. Barner's simple rhyming text presents a variety of the birds—those that delight in Antarctic cold and others that bask in Galapagos sunshine, some that lay eggs in burrows, and others that nestle their eggs on the tops of their leathery feet. Some facts fill the facing pages (such as "What do penguins eat?" accompanied by cut-outs of squid, fish, and krill), and a final spread proffers a parade of all 17 species, including data on global location, size, and weight. This effervescent effort will be just the thing for youngsters not yet ready for Gail Gibbons's informative Penguins! (Holiday House) or the more sophisticated rhymes of Judy Sierra's Antarctic Antics: A Book of Penguin Poems (Harcourt, both 1998).—Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY

From Booklist

On the heels of popular penguin films like Happy Feet comes this book with its simple rhyming text and bold, bright, cut-and-torn paper illustrations that will delight young penguin aficionados while highlighting general penguin information. Each spread's descriptive sentence is conveyed in whimsical artwork that features vibrant hues and textured shapes to depict subtly diverse penguin groups, both chicks and adults. They "waddle and toboggan to the sea," swim, and frolic among other sea creatures, like fish and "sneaky seals." In a more softly rendered scene, "Daddies warm fragile eggs with tender, special care." Slightly older readers will appreciate the appended "Penguin Puzzler," a playfully arranged, Q&A-style collection of facts, including what penguins eat (and who eats penguins) as well as a "Penguin Parade" of the 17 species, with their habitats and size.

My son and I love this book. I saw it at our local aquarium but didn't buy it there and later looked for it on Amazon and got it quick and for a much cheaper price. It's a cute book with great text and pictures. My son is 2.
