New BOARD BOOK: A Penguin’s World

Cheep, cheep, cheep! The cold Antarctic wind carries the small voices of two newly hatched Adelie penguin chicks. Their fluffy down feathers keep them warm. The young birds grow fast and soon will be black and white just like their parents. It won't be long before they will be able to plummet like torpedoes into the sea, and speed through the waves.

A Penguin’s World, now available as a board book for young readers, has just been published by Picture Window books. Dive into this chilly book and learn about penguins. A readable and lively text provides a close-up look at these black and white sea birds in this "anything but black and white" book. Cut paper illustrations help tell the tales of these amazing birds and the world in which they live.

This new book, based on the 2006 book with the same title but now with a shorter text and sturdier pages, brings the story of a penguin's first year to young readers. It follows two Adelie penguin chicks from eggs to independence. We see the penguins in their natural home on the beaches and ice shelves of Antarctica along with other animals that share their environment. The book can be read aloud to younger children or an older child can read it alone.
