Rash, Andy Archie the Daredevil Penguin Viking, 2015 (Penguin). $16.99 PICTURE BOOK Content: G.
Archie the penguin is known around his ice village as brave and willing to try anything. When the other penguins plan a fish fry on another iceberg, Archie is trying frantically to invent a way to fly there, because secretly (or not so secretly) he is scared to swim. Archie ends up in the ocean after one of his flying tricks fails and he realizes that swimming in the ocean is super fun.
This is a cute book about overcoming our fears. The bright colors and adventurous penguin are fun and my son and I anxiously read to see what happened to Archie. The story is told through conversation bubbles.
