Synopsis

I am a Penguin by Barbara Todd

This is a picture book presenting the life of penguins in a fun way for the 4-6 age group, using charming cartoons, rhyming verse and full-colour photography. This first title in New Holland's I am a... series introduces penguins - not only those found in New Zealand but also those found overseas, including Australia and South Africa, making this a title with international potential. The basic aspects of habitat, hunting, social behaviour, breeding and relations with humans are covered at an easy-to-grasp level, presented in simple and catchy rhyming verses, and illustrated both with cute cartoon characters and documentary photographs. The new I Am a... series from New Holland introduces wildlife to ages 4-6.
