With colors as bright as sunshine, six little penguins paint a bold, cheerful surprise for Mama Penguin on a beautiful snowy-white landscape.

Mama loves brightly colored flowers and her little penguins too! Tulip, Tiger Lily, Dandelion, Bluebell, Violet and Broccoli use red, orange, yellow, blue, purple, and green to color in their snowy world and paint a colorful surprise for Mama. Will she know who painted what? Of course she will! But will YOU know?

Simple language and arresting, graphic illustrations introduce readers to the six primary and secondary colors and the adorable antics of six creative little penguins. A lively text, asking children to participate by answering questions, makes this an engaging, heartwarming story that is perfect for bedtime, story time, or anytime.

A fun, colorful, and engaging picture book for toddlers. 

PENGUINS LOVE COLORS is fun way for kids to learn the colors of the rainbow. I really liked the way Aspinall uses the penguins, and their names to help kids identify them with each color of the rainbow. Aspinall definitely knows her targeted reader audience. Her illustrations, and narration are engaging. The illustrations are colorful, and fun. Plus, what's not cute about penguins?! Especially ones who love to draw cute, colorful pictures for their mom. 

This is a great book to pick up if you're teaching colors to your child. It's also great for pre-school, and kindergarten classrooms. 
I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

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