The Lovereading4Kids comment
This is a perfect story for animal lovers young and old, filled with tenderness and love combined with a subtle humour. Soft focus illustrations take readers right into the cold world of the penguins living in Antarctica. The beautiful pictures provide the perfect background for a story that’s also full of information about the life of a young penguin. Young Otto and his friend Leo are still small enough to be perched on their father’s feet but they are old enough to begin to ask questions about the amazing world around them. Through their questions and their dad’s answers the wonderful world of penguins is revealed.
Based on Jill Tomlinson's classic story for slightly older readers, The Penguin who wanted to Learn, this stunning story together with some beautiful illustrations from the hand of Paul Howard brings the life of a penguin to life for toddlers too. Great to read aloud at bedtime.
The Penguin Who Wanted to Find Out by Jill Tomlinson
Otto is a penguin chick, that much he knows, but other than this he has a lot to learn. Life at the bottom of the world is a curious thing and life can change at a moment's notice. The next blizzard, the next meal and the threat of being orphaned are all challenges that must be faced. But how will Otto and his friends manage? The only way that penguins can do - by looking after each other.
