Overview

Penguin's boisterous young animal friends play together in silly, then safe ways in this companion to PLEASE SAY PLEASE!

Overview

Penguin's boisterous young animal friends play together in silly, then safe ways in this companion to PLEASE SAY PLEASE!

Penguin and his rambunctious young friends are off to the playground, running so fast that they knock each other down. Is that right? No, that's wrong! They should walk so that no one gets hurt. At the seesaw and slide, the silly mishaps continue, with pals like Elephant and Chimpanzee playing dangerously (in funny ways), then safely. Hippo bounces a ball off of Penguin's head (BOINK!), and Rhino throws sand in Lion's fur. But by the end of the day, the friends have learned the rights and wrongs of playground play, and they even pick up their toys before heading home!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Trina Heidt
Penguin and his friends travel together to the playground to play but, just like all little kids, in their excitement they sometimes forget how to behave. Penguin, with his whistle around his neck, notices when his friends are misbehaving and sets about to correct them. He wants to know if one should jump off a seesaw, climb up a slide, kick sand in someone's face, or swing across the monkey bars when they are in use. Of course the answer to these questions and others is a resounding no, but Penguin does not stop there. He gently reminds his friends about the proper way to use the playground equipment and the proper and polite way to play with playground friends. Subtitled Penguins Guide to Playground Safety, this picture book is an excellent introduction to playground etiquette for the littlest of playground participants. It is a must read book for playground visitors both big and small.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-This child-friendly guide is set up as a series of don'ts and dos. Each vignette shows the repercussions of doing something thoughtlessly-jumping off a seesaw too quickly, climbing up a slide, kicking sand-followed by the proper way to play. Children can participate in the story by replying to the question asked at the end of each "don't"-"Is that right?"-with the refrain, "No, that's wrong," before Penguin explains the safe way to behave. The text is simple enough for beginners since the softly shaded, multimedia color illustrations provide excellent visual clues. The pictures are full of active animals under the watchful tutelage of whistle-wearing Penguin. A fun addition.-Maura Bresnahan, High Plain Elementary School, Andover, MA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Penguin's second outing is all about playground safety, with a healthy dose of good manners and respect thrown in for good measure. From taking turns on equipment and sharing toys, to getting friends to play games and cleaning up when it's time to go home, Cuyler covers all the bases. Hillenbrand masterfully portrays facial expressions on his simple cartoon animals, making it clear to even the youngest of readers what the friends are feeling when the playground rules are broken. So expressive are his characters that the text does not spell out why the rule needs to be followed-youngsters can see the panic on Hippo's face when she is sliding down the slide and Bear starts to crawl up, for instance. Penguin's fans will be happy to learn that the author/illustrator team has kept the same format: A blatant wrongdoing is followed by the question, "Is that right?" A turn of the page, and likely a chorus from listeners, reveals, "No, that's wrong," while the text and illustrations demonstrate how to do things the right way. Required reading for parents and children alike. (Picture book. 3-6)
