PreS-KOn a cold, wet morning, Pino’s mom wants to bundle her little penguin up, but he insists, “I can get dressed by myself!” He begins decisively but ends up with a sleeve hanging off, boots on his wings, and gloves on his feet. When finished, he can’t move…until mama penguin saves the day. Children will relate to Pino’s misadventures and find the colorful watercolor illustrations appealing enough to carry the story through some flat moments. Regional terms like cazadora (jacket) and chubasquero (raincoat) will be foreign to Hispanics in the U.S. Includes a fine audio CD with narration. Recommended for public libraries and bookstores catering to preschoolers and early-elementary school children.
