Eager for more ,

Penguin's Family

Illustrations are realistic and detailed.
The read to me selection is fluent and inviting for the listener.
I would love to have more non fiction topics to share with my class.

My son (7 years old) loves penguins! He was so excited when he saw it. The ability to read on your own as well as read along with the touch items, is fantastic. I hope we can see more from them! What a great way to help re-enforce reading!

Penguin Palooza

Our 2nd grade students at Finch Elementary love this book. They read this book to find out more about Humboldt penguins and learned about how they might help this endangered penguin.
