Cuddle up with your little penguin this winter!

"The world is big and I am small."

From the eyes of a baby penguin the world is a great big place. The sky so high, the ocean so deep, and the mountains so steep--all these things are magnificent from it's point of view. But in the eyes of it's mother--this little penguin is the biggest, most important thing in the world! This beautiful story is highlighted with foil on the cover and throughout. -quoted from Goodreads

This is the perfect book for preschool & kindergarten aged kids, as the simple words and adorable illustrations will draw them right in. The adorable story is told from baby penguin's perspective and the world around him his huge. From the vast ocean, endless icebergs and the star filled sky, everything around baby penguin is huge. But to this little guys's parents, he is their world.

This story was a hit with my kids and I'm sure it's one that will be a hit with many other young readers. Who can resist an adorable penguin story, with charming illustrations sprinkled with bits of silver foil on each page. This is a great story for beginning readers as well.

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
