Inspired by the idea of being the first penguin to set foot on the north pole, Penguin decides it's time for an adventure. He meticulously plans and then sets forth on his journey. He leaves behind all his friends who are busy working on their own world records in search of something new and undiscovered. Upon reaching his destination he celebrates...alone. Penguin soon feels very lonely and afraid, but it isn't long before he finds a new friendly face. When Penguin finally arrives home again, he discovers the beauty in the idea that the very best part of an adventure is coming home.
Preschool aged children will love the colors, pictures, and adventure to be found inside of Penguin's Big Adventure. There are few words on each page that can quickly be memorized by fascinated young minds. Children are constantly discovering and trying new things. Change and unknown things can sometimes be scary, but Penguin's Big Adventure teaches and reminds that all you need to feel comfortable is a friendly face.
