The Not-So-Perfect-Penguin

Publisher: QED

The perfect penguins are smart, serious and sensible. Percy is not so perfect. He likes to play with his food, splash in the water and slide on his tummy on the ice. Then he parps when the penguins huddle up for warmth and all his friends draw away from him. In the end the penguins lean that it doesn't matter that Percy isn't perfect because they love him just as he is.

Big, lively illustrations and a simple message make this book ideal for classroom circle times. Points for discussion are included at the back.
