Can there be such a thing as too many adorable penguins?

One day a penguin sees a most unusual sight: a hat floating in the icy water. Even more unusual? Out of the hat pops a baby penguin. But not just one baby penguin . . . or even two. But a third, and a fourth, and on and on! At first the mama penguin is happy for the company. Until she realizes that taking care of a family is very hard, very tiring work, and what she could really use is just a moment alone. Yet as newcomer Melissa Guion reminds us in her adorable debut picture book, alone time is all well and good, but, it's family time that's best of all.

Perfect for any mama penguin with a family, or classroom, full of mischievous little ones. And perfect for toddlers who will smile over all the little penguins and the silliness that ensues.

Praise for Baby Penguins Everywhere!

"'Once there was a penguin…' begins this story of the joys and difficulties that come with parenthood. . . . Superb composition leads readers from page to page, showcasing the birds' antics. Spreads showing them playing in the snow, jumping rope, and tumbling are especially effective, and children will enjoy looking from group to group, discovering the variety of sports. This title can be used to talk about family, friends, and the occasional need to be alone."-School Library Journal

"[W]atercolor illustrations delight in the penguins' sheer cuteness. A sweet picture-book treatment of penguins and parenting."-Kirkus Reviews

"Guion's debut uses adorable penguins to salute the idea of taking time to recharge. . . They create instant, exuberant chaos, frolicking with scarves and waving their stumpy wings in the air. It's easy to enjoy their fun: Guion's forms are simple but expressive, and her spreads convey gentle excitement."-Publishers Weekly
