Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
A fluffy baby Emperor penguin stares out from the cover while its parent grooms its feathers. The Emperors live in the Antarctic--and the male incubates the egg and appears to be the baby's initial caregiver. That alone should generate some interesting discussions. It is all accompanied by beautiful photographs that show these flightless birds in all their splendor. Part of the "Animal Safari" series which introduces animals to the very young.
