AuthorJean-Luc Fromental and illustrator Joëlle Jolivet’s 365 Penguins is a bright and funny picture book that will inspire little learners to count their numbers.
A family finds a penguin mysteriously delivered to their door every day for a year. At first they’re cute, but with every passing day, the penguins pile up—along with the family’s problems. Feeding, cleaning, and housing the penguins becomes a monumental task. They’re noisy and smelly, and they always hog the bathroom! And who on earth is sending these kwak-ing critters?
Bright, striking illustrations with lots of opportunity for counting (and lots of laughs), 365 Penguins has become a perennial wintertime favorite.
“The text is clever, providing opportunities to count the number of days in a month and add them together.” —Youth Services Book Review
