Antarctic Antics: A Book of Penguin Poems Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From hatching and feeding to rearing and courting, the everyday adventures of emperor penguins unfold in this collection of jovial verse — much of it gleaned from the perspective of frisky penguin chicks. Young readers will identify with the challenges of childhood these feathered creatures face: waiting to be fed, searching for their mothers, or swimming solo for the first time.

The spirited collection also includes three riddle-poems that encourage readers to guess which ferocious penguin predator lurks on the next page.

Synopsis:

Bestselling penguin poetry fun--now in paperback!

Synopsis:

Dive, swim, and glide with this delightful pack of penguins as they slip and slide through their icy world.

Judy Sierra, Jose Aruego, and Ariane Dewey invite you into the world of an Emperor penguin family and their wild, slip-sliding, rhyming fun.
