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 together time that's best of all.

Perfect for any mama penguin with a family, or classroom, full of mischievous little ones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Charming story about penquins for 2-5 year olds One penguin was all alone and feeling very lonely, until she found a hat floating in the water and out popped a baby penguin. Then another and another, and more and more until the penguin wasn’t lonely anymore. She was very busy playing with the little penguins, watching over them as the penguins ran here and there, and everywhere doing what little penguins do. Soon she was tired, absolutely exhausted, and needed some time alone. And that was okay, sometimes we need a moment or two to recharge, but it’s much more fun to be with others. This delightful book will entertain little ones with its cute watercolor pictures depicting different things the penguins are doing, as well as with the story. Melissa Guion’s debut book is a treasure with an explanation that sometimes a person needs some time to be alone, but being with others is much more enjoyable. I met Melissa at Cincinnati’s Books by the Banks in October. She was every bit as charming as her book.
