Feathered Friends – A penguin Picture Book for Young Children

Feathered Friends picture book about penguins for young childrenIn this book you’ll meet king penguins, chinstrap penguins, and one lonely macaroni.

As seen through the eyes of the oakum boys, which are what king penguin babies are before they grow up.

A short book for young children and beginner readers.

All of these penguin species (and a few more) are found in Antarctica, the coldest, driest, windiest place on earth. It takes some very special qualities to survive in this harsh landscape. But if you are lucky enough to visit here, you will find that no matter how alike the penguins seem, each one is different – and all of them are special.
We hope that by learning about these amazing animals, future generations will want to protect them as much as we do.
