Just lovely. I gave this book to my neighbor girls for Christmas and they loved it. They love penguins and anything to do with snow since they rarely get any where we live. The illustrations are wonderfully simple, clear, crisp watercolors that draw you right into the beautiful, blue, icy world of the penguin. The message is one about the necessity of maintaining a balance between family/fun time and time spent alone recharging ones batteries. A very simple, straightforward concept that befits every child. This is a book that children will want to revisit over and over again because of its simplicity and its alluring illustrations.

One penguin was all alone and feeling very lonely, until she found a hat floating in the water and out popped a baby penguin. Then another and another, and more and more until the penguin wasn’t lonely anymore. She was very busy playing with the little penguins, watching over them as the penguins ran here and there, and everywhere doing what little penguins do. Soon she was tired, absolutely exhausted, and needed some time alone. And that was okay, sometimes we need a moment or two to recharge, but it’s much more fun to be with others. This delightful book will entertain little ones with its cute watercolor pictures depicting different things the penguins are doing, as well as with the story. Melissa Guion’s debut book is a treasure with an explanation that sometimes a person needs some time to be alone, but being with others is much more enjoyable. I met Melissa at Cincinnati’s Books by the Banks in October.  She was every bit as charming as her book.  To learn more about this multi-talented author-illustrator visit Melissa on her web page Melissa Guion, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Google+, and Goodreads.

Cutest illustrations EVER! I can't get over how adorable this book is. I absolutely love Melissa Guion's artwork. It is so simple, stylized, and 100% sweet. The pencil drawing and watercolor artwork is what really makes this book shine. I am always extremely happy to see great artwork in a picture book. It makes the reading experience that much richer and more enjoyable. My children love penguins, so this was a really fun book for them to read. They laughed when a baby penguin came of out of the hat, and enjoyed counting how many penguins were on each page. The story is a sweet simile to family life. The mama penguin loves all her new babies, but is exhausted and needs just a minute to herself. How true this is! While having children is rewarding and wonderful, it is hard work. Sometimes a mommy just needs a little down time before she is ready to jump back into the fray. I only had two complaints about the book. One was the overuse of ellipses. I felt like most of those could have been done away with and made into shorter sentences. The other complaint is the very last sentence which is kind of awkward to read. Other than that, I loved the book!

Baby Penguins Everywhere is now our household favorite! The beautiful illustrations and unique story are a perfect combo. My daughters love the baby penguins, and I love the mama. A must buy for your home library. Can't wait for another book from M. Guion.
