If You Were a Penguin by Florence Minor

Imagine you're a penguin. Okay, now what? What exactly do penguins do? Lots!

What I thought: Simple text paired with realistic illustrations result in an informative and engaging book about penguins. This is perfect for preschool and early elementary school. Fun facts and a species directory give readers/listeners something to think about after the story is over. I (an adult) learned quite a bit from this book. I had no idea there are so many types of penguins.

Story Time Themes: Winter, Penguins
