I am ordering because of the review on NPR. It was wonderful--I love good "read aloud" books that teach children that language itself is a toy. In fact, the perfect toy because it never grows old, or broken, or out of date. And, it never gets lost. A delightful adventure in life from another perspective.
I was checking the price of this book because I am giving it to my nephews, after enjoying it with my 6 year old. The poems are warm without being maudlin. They are also, in some parts, appropriately yucky for little kids. The artwork is wonderful. The poems also teach about how penguins live.
