Penguin Picture Book of the Day

Baby Penguins Everywhere! by Melissa Guion

There are lots of picture books for kids starting preschool or kindergarten, but this one is for parents whose kids are going back to school! Or at least, this is my take! A female penguin was all alone enjoying the sea and ice when a hat appeared and out jumped a LOT of baby penguins. She wasn’t lonely anymore, but every now and then, she just needed a minute to herself. This should be mandatory reading for toddlers and preschoolers! [picture book, ages 2 and up]

  1. Saw my eldest granddaughter go back to preschool and felt so proud!

  2. Valerie

    I feel a little sad because they are growing so fast, a little sad that my summer vacation is over since I work in a school, and a little optimistic for the fun things that will happen throughout the school year.

  3. Lorraine Luizzi

    Having enjoyed my two oldest grandchildren since birth while babysitting them each day, I was in awe of them as I welcomed them back to “Grammy’s” house after their first day of school ( the oldest in second grade and his sister in kindergarten). They were so joyful and confident!

  4. Bobbi Capwell

    As a mom, I am happy for them to continue their education but as a teacher I am sad that summer is so short. 🙂

  5. Nicole-Lynn

    I like it! I think children enjoy meeting new friends and seeing old friends. Thanks for the opportunity.

  6. This book sounds adorable! I am always torn when my kids head back to school. I love having time with them, but I do love getting some time to myself (with Anna) as well!

    I have always worked outside the home so my son has been at school since he was 3 months old so it isn’t any different for me.

    What a sweet story. In my world picture books make every thing better and life easier!

    This book sounds so nice! Enjoyed the illustration video too. I love when my kids get home from school. Seems like 3 o’clock rolls around so fast but then when I see them it feels life it has been ages since I have seen them, strange!
