National Geographic's own film "March of the Penguins" put penguins on the radar of kids and adults alike. This beginning reader introduces kids to the many species of this fascinating creature, with emphasis on oddness - not hard to find! Kids will love knowing that the Emperor Penguin is the same size as they are, many penguins throw up - a lot! and Dads are a lot like Mums in the penguin world. In this book we have included some basic penguin facts but as usual have also incorporated the extremes that kids love. There are superlatives, jokes, and best of all, the incredible photographs available only from National Geographic. The cover also makes use of the NG Kids logo, matching the logo used on NG Kids magazine with a subscriber base of 1.3 million. Books are levelled and presented to parents, teachers, and librarians with a letter from an expert in the field of reading and education.
