Publisher Comments:

TURTLE IS SO excited by the book about penguins that his dad reads him at bedtime that he decides he wants to be a penguin. So the next morning, he creates a penguin costume, grabs his book, and heads for the schoolbus. His kindergarten classmates are thrilled. They all want to be penguins too! Turtle shows his book to his teacher, and all day long he and his classmates do as the penguins do—they slide down the slide on their bellies during recess, form a waddling conga line at music time, and snack on goldfish crackers. Its a super-cool penguin day. Turtle thinks hed like to be a penguin every day. But, that night, his dad has a new book to read—and this one is all about monkeys!

This delightful picture book from Valeri Gorbachev celebrates both the power of books, and the joys of imaginative play in all its dress-up-box glory. And, with the extra penguin facts at the end of the book, this is a perfect blueprint for teachers planning penguin days of their own.

A perfect book to stimulate a preschooler's imagination and sense of play. Seeing turtle dressed like a penguin is giggle-aloud silly! Don't be surprised if your little one wants to dress up like a penguin the next day. Or you just might want to try it yourself.
