Pat Posner's humble opinion
8/10 You are working hard. Well done.
What's it about?
Having fun with the Penguin family who love Christmas.
What happens?
The Penguin family can't wait to get busy preparing all the Christmas treats. First, though, they sing Christmas carols 'LOUD and PROUD'. Then they buy gifts, and wrap them up. They cut down two Christmas trees and make tasty food for the Christmas party. They open their presents, the party goes on late into the night, then they all fall asleep. The beautiful, bold illustrations tell the story as much as the words - there are lots of little extras to talk about on every page, too. All the members of the Penguin family are appealing and full of fun.
Is it easy to read?
Great to read aloud and children will look at the pictures and be able to 'read' the story themselves.
Who says so?
This review by Pat Posner.
The publisher reckons...
'The penguins love Christmas, and can't wait to get busy preparing all the Christmas treats!' Be bowled over by the penguin family and their enthusiasm for Christmas! Mum and penguin chicks sing carols, buy gifts, wrap them up, decorate their Christmas trees (two, one for inside the igloo, one for outside), cook tasty food, then... They Eat the nice tasty food, unwrap the presents, and party! Until they fall fast asleep... Irresistible!
