The author, Janina Rossiter, has written such a fun story about Tovi the penguin. Tovi and his friends were going away for Christmas. They went to a little house in the woods. They got there just before it started snowing heavily. They went inside, decorated the house and their tree, and had a lovely evening. They all were snug in bed waiting for Santa to come. In the morning, they awoke to find no presents. When they went outside, they found so much snow that maybe Santa could not find them. They busied themselves with having fun and making a delicious dinner. They had such a good time that no one remembered Santa had not come. The next morning it was time to go home, and when they got home they found a big surprise. When you read this book you will discover what they found.
Parents/teachers will enjoy reading this book to their children. The children will have such a good time listening to everything that the Penguins did. They will be able to discuss all the lessons learned. The illustrations are vibrant, colorful and vivid. They depict the adventures of the Penguins. A wonderful story for Christmas.

Excellent way to teach children the real meaning of Christmas; it's not about the presents and material things. Book is short and simple with large bright illustrations appropriate for the toddler and preschool audience.
Children's colorful book about Tovi the penguin and they are all going on a holiday.
They wake up to find Santa was not able to find them so there are no presents, not even in their stockings.
They are still able to enjoy the day with a nice dinner and the whole family singing. When they go back in to pack to leave they find a surprise!
Tovi and his friends go on a Christmas trip, but a disaster happens – there is a storm and Santa can’t find them. They figure out a way to celebrate anyway. How the friends turn this adversity into a wonderful celebration is so very heartwarming and resourceful. Children and adults alike can find comfort and satisfaction in how the penguin friends celebrate Christmas without getting presents. The end of the story is going to make you cry and laugh with joy – it did me.
The brightly colored pictures are exactly illustrative of the story and children will love pore over them and imagine their own story. Good illustrations are a great way to encourage a child’s imagination and Ms. Rossiter does it beautifully.
