Do you want to dress a penguin? My kids love activities where they put things together. Today, the book we will read that goes along with the activity is Penguin and the Pinecone, a friendship story by Salina Yoon.
This is a really cute story about a penguin who is finds a pinecone. He is not sure what the pinecone is but he quickly becomes friends with the pinecone and he knits the pinecone a scarf. Soon though, he brings the pinecone to the forest and leaves it there. He misses his friend but when he returns, the pinecone has grown into a tree! This is an adorable book about how when you give love, it grows and absence makes the heart grow fonder. This is a great book for winter or even Valentine’s Day.
Do you want to dress a Penguin?
Penguin leaves his cold home for the tropics and needs to get undressed and then dressed again when he returns to the cold weather. This also is a super cute story of friendship and how absence makes the heart grow fonder because while on vacation Penguin meets a crab friend who decides to come visit him in the antarctic because they will miss each other so much.
Last but not least – my personal favorite penguin book… by Sandra Boynton:
Your Personal Penguin is a read-aloud, listen-along favorite for young children and the grown-ups who read to them. Fun to hold, the book tells the story of a slightly bewildered hippo and the loyal penguin who wants nothing more than to be his pal… This book is ADORABLE -and it is so fun to sing the song along with it.
