  Penguins are very busy creatures. They are always up to something or other. Let’s see what they are doing. Here are some penguins meeting and greeting. Clearly they are very sociable birds. Here are different kinds of penguins “bumping” and “jumping,” “sliding” and “diving, ” “splashing” and “dashing.” Goodness! I had no idea that such aristocratic and calm looking animals could be so active.

  Of course penguins sometimes have do those everyday sort of things that we all do like cleaning themselves, sleeping, and talking to one another.

 This is the perfect little book for very young children who like penguins. A very simple text perfectly compliments the wonderful photographs which are sweet and often funny. This is a book which will make many little children love penguins more than ever.
