" A family of four little penguins are getting ready to play in the new fallen snow. Sparse text, delightful illustrations and sure to please the youngest wanting to read about the snow experience from dressing for it to playing in it. " said.

" I thought this book was cute especially for a younger audience--those still using sippy cups. It has beautiful illustrations and is good to discuss colors, snow, and clothes. However, my younger audience didn't seem very plussed by it. " said.

" Wonderful story about a family of penguins. They have to have certain things to go in the snow. Each penguin a different color. Great to help children understand what clothing to wear in snow as well as colors. " said.

" A delightful little picture book about what is needed on the first snowy day of winter. Perfect for little ones.Written by Cynthia Rylant, illustrated by Christian Robinson and published by Schwartz & Wade Books.#PB #seasons #winter #Snow " said.

" This is an enjoyably quirky book with penguins at the coming of winter. Round-headed penguins? It adds to the feel. With scarves and mittens and boots? What else would you wear in such cold? Robinson's illustrations are really inventive and nice mix of acrylic and cut paper that makes simple figures expressive. " said.

" Although I'm sure that Little Penguins is intended for the youngest of readers or read-to-me types, everything about this book seems overly simplistic, from the sentences to the illustrations. That's not to say that there aren't some cute things going on, but just enough to make this book "ok". " said.

"I can see how the minimalist text could be appealing (but wordless would be even better). I can see how the illustrative style has a certain charm. But the whole thing is rather bizarre. Five little penguins and one mom live in an igloo, need boots to go outside, and need warm cookies when they go inside. Wtf? Make them ermines or badgers, something like that, at least, to eliminate some of the dissonance....

I've loved lots by Rylant and will look for others by Robinson, but this is just ridiculous.
" said.

"Magical text by Cynthia Rylant + magical illustrations by Christian Robinson = this wonder-filled, chilly winter adventure of five little penguins and their mother. Word weaver Rylant tells this simple tale filled with warmth and perfect for emergent readers. Robinson uses paper collage and acrylic paint to show the five penguins (each with their own color) as they prepare to go outside, slide, sled, walk, dive and glide in the snow until thoroughly chilled, they return to the warmth of their icy igloo home.

Perfect for a winter evening! PreSchool- grade 1.
