The Penguin Lady - Children's Book Review

Book Synopsis:

Penelope Parker lives with penguins! Short ones, tall ones; young and old—the penguins are from all over the Southern Hemisphere including some that live near the equator! Do the penguin antics prove too much for her to handle? Children count and then compare and contrast the different penguin species as they learn geography.


My Review:

Penelope Parker, a likable old lady, acquires several species of penguins in The Penguin Lady.  This book, with charming illustrations, helps teach geography and simple math.  At first Penelope Parker only has one penguin, then acquires two, then has three sent to her, and so on until her house has become overrun with penguins.  In addition to the story, there is a "Creative Minds" section that teaches comparisons and differences of penguin adaptations, true or false questions on penguins of the world, and a reference guide for how tall penguins are.

The Penguin Lady is a Spring 2012 release from Sylvan Dell Publishing.
