Overview

The irrepressible, ever-original Sandra Boynton introduces a brand new Boynton board book. Your Personal Penguin is a read-aloud, listen-along favorite for young children and the grown-ups who read to them. Fun to hold, the book tells the story of a slightly bewildered hippo and the loyal penguin who wants nothing more than to be his pal:

Now, lots of other penguins seem to be fine in a universe of nothing but ice.
But if I could be yours, and you could be mine,
Our cozy little world would be twice as nice.
I want to be Your Personal Penguin.

My kids really love the Sandra Boynton books. The pictures are colorful and the stories are great for preschoolers. This one has a cute song that goes along with it, so you can read it or sing it to your child.

Sandra Boynton's books are the best and never disappoint! My two year old is learning many different words and ideas from her books. They are alot of fun to read together.

My 3-year old loves this book. Not my favorite Boynton, but still cute. I have not downloaded the song (maybe having the tune in my head would help).

I read this book and fell in love with it. It is clever and funny. I can't read it without smiling. I think that any parent with a young child NEEDS to have this book for bed time.

This is really a great children's book to first be read to the child then to be read by the child. I also love how she adds poems just as in the 'Skog Forest' books.

If you have young readers (pre readers) this is a perfect Christmas gift. My kids' lives have been enriched time and time again, thanks to this wonderfully creative artist. Boynton is among the few children's authors who make it bearable for parents to read the same books repeatedly to their kids.
