“Nicely illustrated with realistic acrylic paintings… this book is eye-catching and attractive. Daigle’s text reads, in places, like a Cousteau-inspired script.” – School Library Journal

“Just when I think I’ve seen and read it all regarding penguins, along comes a book to dispel that notion. The World of Penguins offers an abundance of surprising and delightful gems. Written in clear, detailed, descriptive paragraphs…. Acrylic illustrations complement the text … an excellent research resource.” – Quill & Quire

  1. I didn’t know it was Penguin Awareness Day. In that case, I’ll do a penguin theme in my preschool storytime tomorrow! Your books are really helpful for storytimes, by the way, thanks 🙂

  4. I love it! We need to talk to you about Ripple. Do you know about us yet? We’re a way to record books online in your own voice to accompany the book. Kids love hearing the book read to them by family or friends far away. It’s such a great way to connect and build literacy skills.
