Baby Penguins Everywhere!

Written and illustrated by Melissa Guion

Published by Penguin Young Readers Group


Publisher's Summary

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.

I love how this book explores the spectrum from peaceful solitude to loneliness to exuberant chaos and back. The adorable little penguins are so lively and spirited in their games, it is easy to see why the Mama might need a rest, why, even the babies might benefit from just a moment of peace and quiet. This is a charming book about the joy of a large and loving family.

This is a book with a mature message, but a message that isn't too serious. I appreciated that it was a book about something we don't see in very many books- the need for alone time! Being with people is the best, but sometimes we still need to just be on our own. The illustrations were cute and silly, but not over the top.
