" After the hurricane in New Orleans, African penguin Patience along with her fellow penguins live for 9 months in California until their aquarium in New Orleans is repaired. " said.

" This is a sweet story about the effects of the hurricane from the animal's point of view. Thankfully, this has a happy ending unlike many other Hurricane Katrina stories. " said.

" Cute story about rescuing penguins from an aquarium during Hurricane Katrina. All Elementary grades! " said.

" This is a sweet read with lovely illustrations about a group of penguins that needed to be temporarily relocated from their home at the New Orleans’s Audubon Aquarium due to Hurricane Katrina. " said.

" The story of how the South African penguins were rescued from the Audubon Zoo in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina, told from the POV of the eldest penguin. Warm, inspiring story despite the author's lame attempts at punning. " said.

" This is a really sweet, simple, straightforward Hurricane Katrina rescue story about an aquarium from the perspective of Patience the Penguin. The art is cute, and the story only momentarily focuses on the hurricane, minimizing the fear factor for kids, and it's a pretty basic story. There is a penguin named Zelda, so this story gets bonus points. " said.

" The text vacillates between realism and anthropomorphism. We are given technical facts, "Her home at Audubon Aquarium in New Orleans" and on the next page "Patience had to keep all her penguins in line." As the story of these penguins' relocation unfolds, the inconsistency continues, which I found jarring at times. I look forward to trying this as a read aloud with students. Basic, simple illustrations against white background support the text nicely. " said.

" A nonfiction picture book about the penguins at the New Orleans's Audubon Aquarium of the Americas when Hurricane Katrina knocked out the power. The gentle storytelling narrative will make this an accessible read aloud. This will be an especially useful book for preschool units on zoos and community helpers. The fate of the penguins will keep young readers interested without being too frightening or worrisome. " said.
