Reader reviews

The Chilly Little Penguin.
I loved this book. I read it to my class of four year olds and we got a lot out of it. Not only was it fun reading, but we also had fun guessing the solution to the mystery. The children drew what they thought the answer was. It's a great book to read with themes like Winter or Snow or Polar Animals.
