Be Brave, Little Penguin by Giles Andreae - ESSENTIAL

Andreae, Giles Be Brave, Little Penguin, illustrated by Guy Parker-Rees.  PICTURE BOOK.  Orchard Books (Scholastic), 2017.  $17.  9781338150391

Pip-pip the Penguin is afraid of all of the scary things that might be lurking in the water.  It takes his mom’s gentle encouragement to help find the joy in the water.

Now here is a rhyming text that works!  And it is a encouraging story accompanied by cute illustrations of penguins.  This would be a great starter to talk about trying new things – whether food or activities, and a way to get children talking about their fears.
