Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jamie Hain
The image of the majestic and loveable penguin has become increasingly popular in pop culture over the last few years, especially in children's media, but most images of the penguin focus on the ice-loving penguins of the Antarctica, ignoring the thousands of penguins that are found all over the Southern Hemisphere, from the Galapagos Islands to New Zealand. This book covers all seventeen types of penguins, from the two pound fairy penguin to the sixty-six pound emperor penguin, providing information about body structure, survival tricks, breeding, and habitat. Beautiful full-page photographs showcase penguins from around the world and enhance the accompanying text. Part of the "Living Wild" series, this book contains a glossary of new words, an easy to use index for young readers, and excerpts from stories about man's first interactions with penguins. This book is an ideal starting point for readers just beginning to learn about the vast world of penguins and would be a great addition to any library serving middle school children.
