Baby Penguins LOVE Their Mama! by Melissa Guion- Essential

Guion, Melissa Baby Penguins LOVE Their Mama!  Penguin Young Readers Group, 2014. $16.99. Picture Book. Content: G.

Baby penguins have a lot to learn!  They have swimming lessons, waddling lessons, and even sliding lessons.  All of these lessons exhaust Mama! But she "loved doing all she could for her babies.  And she was proud of them."  What will happen when the penguin babies grow up and get better than Mama at swimming, waddling and sliding? The heartwarming ending will touch all readers.

We enjoyed this book.  The pictures and simple yet adorable!  The story line is sweet and very realistic to mother-child relationships.  This would be the perfect gift for any new mother.  The book could be used in a classroom in a unit about families.

ESSENTIAL.  Pre-K.  EL (K-3).  Reviewer: SL
