A lovely tale for 3-8 year olds
on 6 June 2017
This was a favourite book of mine when I was a child, and it has been a delight to introduce my two sons to this story. We have the book and the audio CD and both my boys (aged 6 and 3) love it and want to listen to it (or read it) repeatedly. All the books in this series are nice, but this, The owl who was afraid of the dark, and the gorilla who wanted to grow up are my preferred ones.
The book doesn't have tonnes of pictures, but it is a lovely story for children and can be read over a few evenings if need be. It is about a penguin chick who grows up and learns about the world he lives in and what it means to be an emperor penguin. It is gentle and well written and the audio version is nicely read.
Please note, this book used to be called "Penguin's Progress"
