Problems, Problems

Tuesday was World Penguin Day. Who can resist penguins? They’re cute, and they waddle. I hope you didn’t forget your inner child and you waddled like one on Tuesday.

Did you know that sometimes penguins have problems? Read on.

Penguin Problems written by Jory John and illustrated by Lane Smith, Random House Books for Young Readers.

Penguin is having a bad day. Nothing is right. It’s too early. It’s too cold. There’s too much snow. It’s too bright. It’s one problem after another. Then a walrus comes along with some inspirational words about appreciating what you have. It takes Penguin a while to realize there is a point to the walrus’s words, and Penguin begins to see the world around him as a better place. But then again, there are always Penguin problems. Lane Smith’s delightful illustrations combined with Jory John’s text make this book a laugh-out-loud success for both children and adults.

Waddle to your local library or bookstore and pick up Penguin Problems and some of my other penguin favorites.
