Description

Newbery Medal-winning author Cynthia Rylant and Caldecott Honor-winning, bestselling illustrator Christian Robinson pair up to tell this wintry story about five little penguins enjoying a snowy day. Snowflakes? Many snowflakes. Winter is coming. So begins this ever-so-simple story. As the snow starts to fall, the excited penguins pull out scarves, mittens, heavy socks, and boots, and Mama helps them bundle up. But when it's time to go out, one timid penguin decides to stay home. Filled with waddling baby penguins, playful text, and delightful illustrations, this book feels like a young picture-book classic in the making. "Visually stunning. . . . Pair with Ezra Jack Keats's classic The Snowy Day." -Booklist, Starred "An excellent tale for the very young. A very warm and satisfying bedtime book and a paean to penguins and winter delights." -Kirkus Reviews Winners of the National Parenting Product Award A School Library Journal Best Book of the Year
