Baby Penguin's First Waddles

(3) K-3 A year in the life of a newly hatched emperor penguin is described in engaging present-tense text. As the chick grows into an independent year-old adult, the straightforward text explains penguins' food, habitat, skills, adaptations, and threats from global warming. Numerous large, up-close photos of penguins in action help document the penguin's early life and add to the book's appeal for elementary-age animal lovers.
