Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS—A penguin chick ponders the big, fast, long, steep world around him and notes how small he is in comparison. But when he is with his mother, he knows he is safe because "the biggest thing to you…is me!" The simple text and easy-to-read block printing make this a good choice for beginning readers. Dodd uses a palette of black, white, and slate blue with touches of silver to evoke the freezing Antarctic habitat. The adult emperor penguins are elegant with a dab of orange-yellow around their necks. The contrasts between the penguin chick and the sleek adults gliding through bubble-filled water beautifully illustrate a young child's point of view. This pleasant book is a nice size and format for its target age, but starting and ending the story on the inside covers is a bad idea since the book jacket obscures the illustrations.—Martha Simpson, Stratford Library Association, CT

This is my 2 year olds absolute favorite book! With my son being a terrible 2 I normally have to keep books out of his reach or they will become half a book or just a cover of a book. But not this one!! He loves that the book is about him. It has educational quirks with great illustrations. It is also an easy read for beginners. My 7 year old can read it to my 2 year old. A great find. Happy I found it! :)
