The Emperor's Egg
This is a great book about Emperor Penguins. The kids always find it interesting that the daddy penguin takes care of the egg on his feet and doesn't get to eat for a long time! They like to hear about what the babies eat too. Their reactions are so cute.
As a followup activity to the story I had them draw and write 4 things they remember and liked about the Emperor Penguins. I think their papers turned out pretty adorable.
Dad guards the egg! (cute!)
(love the picture of the penguin sliding on belly!)
(awww, look at the penguin family!)
(Ha! the mommy gets sick in the baby's mouth.)
