Today is Penguin Awareness Day! Did you know:
- A penguin colony becomes a source of heat in cold weather
- The colony provides protection from predators
- The young in a penguin colony form a nursery, or crèches, leaving both parents free to fish together

The World of Penguins
Written by Evelyne Daigle
Illustrated by Daniel Grenier
Translated by Genevieve Wright
“Nicely illustrated with realistic acrylic paintings… this book is eye-catching and attractive. Daigle’s text reads, in places, like a Cousteau-inspired script.” – School Library Journal
“Just when I think I’ve seen and read it all regarding penguins, along comes a book to dispel that notion. The World of Penguins offers an abundance of surprising and delightful gems. Written in clear, detailed, descriptive paragraphs…. Acrylic illustrations complement the text … an excellent research resource.” – Quill & Quire

I didn’t know it was Penguin Awareness Day. In that case, I’ll do a penguin theme in my preschool storytime tomorrow! Your books are really helpful for storytimes, by the way, thanks 🙂
Thank you! We are happy to hear that our books are helpful for storytimes!
Have a fun day looking up penguin themed books for tomorrow! 🙂
I love it! We need to talk to you about Ripple. Do you know about us yet? We’re a way to record books online in your own voice to accompany the book. Kids love hearing the book read to them by family or friends far away. It’s such a great way to connect and build literacy skills.
I will check out Ripple, it sounds interesting!
