From School Library Journal
PreSchool-"Busy, busy penguins. What are they doing?" Schindel uses simple rhyming word pairs that introduce penguin life. Toddlers will enjoy seeing these lovable birds in action. Indeed, they are a busy bunch, from "meeting" and "greeting" to "pooping" and "drooping." The superb color photographs give action to the spare text. The animals stand out against the cold blues and whites of the arctic background. Readers will chuckle at seeing these dignified creatures in silly and endearing poses. This board book is perfect for youngsters to discover independently or to share with an adult.

This board book, straightforward in concept, begins with the lines "Busy, busy penguins. What are they doing?" and answers the question by identifying the birds' activities with rhyming or near-rhyming phrases such as "penguins bumping / penguins jumping / penguins sliding / penguins diving." Although parents may be taken aback by the page showing "penguins pooping," their toddlers will probably take it in stride. Each phrase appears on a single page accompanied by a clear, colorful photo of one or more penguins. A well-designed board book that manages to be simple without looking babyish. Carolyn Phelan

The only thing I don't like about the pooping page is that they could've picked a better picture, with thicker poop of a different color that's easier to tell apart from pee. I know penguins' creations are more liquid than ours, but in this picture it's a thin little stream of yellow, which looks like pee and is confusing. The penguins at our local aquarium have more of a soft-serve ice cream thing going on. Sorry about the details... But if you have young kids, you shouldn't be new to or afraid of poop anyway ;-)
