What a delightful way to be introduced to the habits and habitat of penguins and their friends and foes in Antarctica. This is a short simple book, but in its few meticulously researched pages manages to pick up three stars! If this list was just for *young children*, I’d happily award it five stars, but while the older children didn’t mind listening to it, we wouldn’t choose it if we were just reading to double-digit-aged-children. It’s a must-read for the younger set, though, and it’s also a good book for beginning readers to tackle. Plus, it made us want to look out for other books by Jill Tomlinson.
