"A fun, educational adventure with an adorable penguin! My kids (age 11/2 and 3) love the Tovi the Penguin books, and this newest book is noexception. They love pointing out the ladybug on each page, and thelanguage is easy for them to understand. They know certain parts byheart already and repeat as I read out loud. The illustrations arebeautiful, and there are lots of tiny details for them to pick out,name, talk about... they really get a lot out of just one book!"

Top Customer Reviews
Vibrant colors with sweet illustrations keep young readers interested, while older siblings will easily manage reading the text independently. Children learn that not all penguins live in cold climates and how to problem solve in a difficult situation. Recommended for readers two through eight, though I believe preschoolers and kindergarten children will especially enjoy it as a bedtime story.
This colorful children's book about Tovi and his penguin family and they head to the seashore for a day.
Cool the things they discover. Each wants to do something different. The options are limitless, just use your imagination.
When the tide comes in they are in trouble and discuss what to do and still have a fun time. They have the solution so it won't happen to others.
"Those penguins shouldn't be on the beach, it would be too hot and they like the snow. And, why didn't the penguins eat the fish they saw.".
We explained that some species of penguins live in hot climates and make home in holes in the sand (but they don't look like this). She loved the book.
This review was provided as a courtesy after receiving a digital copy of the book.
I also find it refreshing to be able to just sit back in my reclining chair and allow my inner child the opportunity to read a book and then tell me what it taught of it. In this book, Tovi and his penguin friends decide to spend a day at the beach where they found a wonderful location, underneath a tree so it would give them shade from the hot sun. The only thing they did not expect had been the ocean tide coming in and separating them from the rest of the beach by surrounding them with water.
While the story is quite entertaining for its early beginner readers it’s also unsuspectingly educational as well. This is one of the best ways to reach these young minds for they can better relate to the characters in the book and the lesson/information being given. In this book, which is part of a series of Tovi’s adventures, readers are given information about tides, and are also taught about disappointments/sharing.
The wonderful illustrations on each page help its readers visualized the story and is why I’m giving this book 5 STARS.
