Do you want to dress a penguin?
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.
Penguin and PineconePenguin on VacationThe Emperor’s Egg: Read and WonderNational Geographic Readers: Penguins!
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?
After reading the book Penguin and the Pinecone, you can dress your penguin with a scarf and even ice skates, if you wish! Another great book that could also work well is Penguin on vacation.
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.

Madreen Karle is a master first grade reading teacher with over 30 years of classroom experience. She taught reading in a special needs and English as a Second Language classroom. After retiring she wrote a reading program to help others learn how to teach reading. She is a trusted educator and author of 5 books to help teach children to read and write. In addition to her books, she is a mentor for 3 websites that give reading teacher tips (Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading, Mrs. Karle’s Reading Patch, and Mrs. Karle’s Handwriting Patch). Through her teaching she learned that confidence was the key to learning to read. A child who is not confident at reading does not like to read and struggles to read. Mrs. Karle created “sunshine moments” to help teach children how to grow their confidence and learn to read.
Meeghan Karle Mousaw (Madreen’s daughter) has her Master’s in Special Education. She has 8 years experience teaching children to read online. In addition, she developed a curriculum to teach children handwriting called The Handwriting Patch. With the Handwriting Patch learning is fun because children learn to draw and learn handwriting at the same time. In 2019 The Handwriting Patch curriculum became an amazon best seller the first year it was released, helping thousands of kids learn handwriting with a unique, fun method. She is mom to 6 kids, each with differently learning abilities and struggles.
The Reading Patch was established by the creators of Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading. Together they have been featured on the NBC media outlets and Parents Magazine online. Over the last 8 years in their online platform, Madreen and Meeghan have worked tirelessly with teachers, homeschoolers and parents looking to help children learn to read to become a trusted authority in teaching children to read and advocating early literacy skills. They often partner with other educational experts to deliver the most current information to the Reading Patch community.
What a precious idea! Pinned it to my Preschool Letter Activities board. We will be studying P is for Penguin in my preschool class this year and I will need this! My kids LOVE “paper dolls” We do the daily weather report in my class and dress “weather boy” appropriately for the day’s weather. ♥
