The Penguin Cha Cha is an adorable story. Some resident penguins appear serious-minded to most zoo visitors, but Julia knows otherwise. Kids will love reading this beautifully illustrated story to see how Julia discovers the penguins' delight for dancing and what other animals may have tricks up their sleeves!
This is such a cute book with such great imagery in the language. I love Kristi's sketch drawings, so unique and lovely. It will make you want to cha-cha!
