The Lovereading4Kids comment
An absolute must for all those who love animals. Otto is the first penguin chick to be born that year and he has to teach all the other chicks to swim, to dive and so on, but of course he must learn how to do it first and all by himself because the adult penguins seem preoccupied with other things! Tomlinson’s simple, lighthearted and often humorous writing style are great for those who read a little as they’ll be encouraged to read all the more and become hooked on the reading bug.
The Penguin Who Wanted to Learn by Jill Tomlinson
Otto isn't an ordinary penguin - he is the first penguin chick to be born that year, which means that it is his job to look after all the other young penguins. But out in the snow and ice of Antarctica there is an awful lot to learn, and Otto has to discover for himself how to swim, dive and catch fish before he can teach anyone else. And how will he do that when all the grown-ups are too busy to help?
