Baby Penguins Everywhere!

Baby Penguins Everywhere! Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Can there be such a thing as too many adorable penguins?

One day a penguin sees a most unusual sight: a hat floating in the icy water. Even more unusual? Out of the hat pops a baby penguin. But not just one baby penguin . . . or even two. But a third, and a fourth, and on and on! At first the mama penguin is happy for the company. Until she realizes that taking care of a family is very hard, very tiring work, and what she could really use is just a moment alone. Yet as newcomer Melissa Guion reminds us in her adorable debut picture book, alone time is all well and good, but, it's family time that's best of all.

Perfect for any mama penguin with a family, or classroom, full of mischievous little ones. And perfect for toddlers who will smile over all the little penguins and the silliness that ensues.

Praise for Baby Penguins Everywhere!

“‘Once there was a penguin… begins this story of the joys and difficulties that come with parenthood. . . .  Superb composition leads readers from page to page, showcasing the birds antics. Spreads showing them playing in the snow, jumping rope, and tumbling are especially effective, and children will enjoy looking from group to group, discovering the variety of sports. This title can be used to talk about family, friends, and the occasional need to be alone.”—School Library Journal

 

“[W]atercolor illustrations delight in the penguins sheer cuteness. A sweet picture-book treatment of penguins and parenting.”—Kirkus Reviews

"Guion's debut uses adorable penguins to salute the idea of taking time to recharge. . . They create instant, exuberant chaos, frolicking with scarves and waving their stumpy wings in the air. It's easy to enjoy their fun: Guion's forms are simple but expressive, and her spreads convey gentle excitement."—Publishers Weekly

 

Synopsis:

A perfect holiday, Valentine's Day—or any day—board book for little hands and flippers!

When you're a mama penguin with lots (and lots) of little ones to take care of, the days can melt together in a blur. Monday: swimming lessons. Tuesday: sliding. Wednesday: waddling. And on and on. Mama loves her babies so much. Do they know, she wonders, just how much?

As it turns out, they do--because they love her just as much! And to show it, they surprise her with a thoughtful gesture of their own on Sunday.

In her companion to Baby Penguins Everywhere! Melissa Guion offers another adorable book, perfect for teaching the days of the week and for sharing between moms and their little ones.

Praise for Baby Penguins Love Their Mama

"Guion's . . . illustrations perfectly accompany the text. The babies are full of personality, while the expression on Mama's face ranges from good-natured patience to a look during Saturday squawking that will be familiar to parents and teachers everywhere. Elementary schools and public libraries should add this lovely confection to their collections."—School Library Journal

"[C]ute and heartfelt, it will be much appreciated on Mothers Day. A sweet book with broad appeal."—Booklist
