Item Description...
A newly hatched Emperor penguin wants more than anything to look like his tall, strong father. But when his own fluffy gray feathers start to fall out, Little Penguin is sure his wish will never come true. It takes a long ocean journey and some gentle words of wisdom from his mother before he realizes that he has become what he most wanted to be after all. Nature lovers of all ages will delight in the captivating illustrations and the reassuring story about growing up. On every page, lavish embossing illuminates the frosty beauty of the Antarctic setting and adds intriguing texture to the feathers and footprints of the creatures that live there.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Tries to cover too much ground  Feb 27, 2005
I was hoping for a book that focused on the 'real' experiences of a baby penguin, and the losing of the feathers does this, but the rest of the book is a bit diluted. The author tries to touch upon the baby being like its daddy and its getting lost, all while undergoing a physical transformation, but I would have preferred a more focused story. The encounters with other animals are extraneous, but I was hoping for something more informational than entertaining.
Timeless, Familiar Tale with some Fact-Learning, too.  Jan 4, 2004
This durable, thick cross between a board book and a regular paged book for young children follows a familiar tale. Little penguin is born, doesn't follow parent's direction... gets temporarily lost... finds a wise creature of another sort who assists him in finding his way...begins losing feathers and then is refound and found out that losing his feathers is just perfect..

Sounds like the lives of many of US, only in in Animal Sense as well as many other books and legends.

The reason this book works is because it is timeless and you can engage any age child in conversation around the story, the illustrations, the situations the little Penguins is in which may be similar to the child's.

I also learned a very fun fact right on the first two pages... so you might gain more than you think in reading this colorfully illustrated title.
