I'll have a basket full of some of our favorite penguin reads together here shortly but I wanted to start off with a book called Penguin by Polly Dunbar. A little boy named Ben gets a penguin as a present. Only problem is the penguin won't talk. The little boy gets very frustrated with the penguin only in his frustration to find he has annoyed a lion. Annoying lion's I might add should be avoided. But not to worry the penguin comes to his rescue and the two are at once friends again. It's a short simple read that little kids will find very funny. My two are all giggles when we read this book. The pages are all white with only the brightly colored penguin, boy and lion all whimsically sketched.
