Baby Penguins Spread Lots of Love
While it's cold outside, it's the perfect time to curl up with your little ones and read a story. Melissa Guion's Baby Penguins Love Their Mama! is one of those rare books that kids and parents will both love. A mother penguin is busy taking care of her very large family. Between swimming lessons on Monday and squawking on Saturday, this Mama sure is busy. While Mama is playing the role of a modern overscheduled parent, the roly-poly babies are busy making her a special heart-shaped surprise. This sweet family story, coupled with Guion's playful pencil-and-watercolor illustrations, is sure to warm even the frostiest of hearts.
