I found this little book at a garage sale for 10 cents. Even if you are not that lucky and have to pay full price for it, it is well worth it!
This is a book of poems all about penguins, that are both very amusing and educational. This is not high literature, but these poems are so clever, that even I enjoy reading them! Kids will learn a lot about penguins as they laugh.
To give you an idea, the titles of the poems are the following:
- A Hatchling’s Song
- Mother Penguin’s Vacation
- My Father’s Feet
- Regurgitate (my kids’ favorite)
- I Am Looking For My Mother
- Penguins’ First Swim
- Predator Riddles
- Diary of a Very Short Winter Day
- Belly Sliding
- Be My Penguin
- Antarctic Anthem
If you have a penguin-lover in your family, then you MUST get this book! Also, check out this very cool live wild penguin webcam from Antarctica that I found recently!
Isn’t the Internet amazing? It looks pretty cold there, doesn’t it!
