Waddle, slide, and swim through life as a penguin!

Have you ever wondered what it's like to be a penguin? Imagine zooming through the ocean, diving for krill, or flopping on your belly and tobogganing across ice. This is how penguins spend their days—and they want you to join them! Now, kids ages 5 to 7 can explore the wonderful lives of waddling, web-footed penguins!

Packed with incredible detail and delightful illustrations, this book takes an expedition to South Georgia Island and beyond to teach you everything there is to know about every penguin species. Discover what penguins sound like, how they stay warm on land and while swimming, why they can't fly, and how penguin families raise their chicks.

  • A penguin's life for me—Follow the King penguin's journey as he grows into an adult bird raising his own baby chicks through a fun and illustrated narrative.
  • Deep dive with penguins—Explore the differences in behavior, appearance, and habitat between 19 different penguin species, including Emperor, Macaroni, African, and more.
  • Fast penguin facts—Did you know penguins have knees? Or that most penguins can dive up to 300 feet deep? Find out more with tons of awesome penguin trivia!
