I heart this oversize picture book. 365 Penguins by by Jean-Luc Fromental, illustrated by Joëlle Jolivet. Everyday for a year a new penguin arrives at one family’s home, beginning on January 1st.
Why are they coming? Who is sending them? We find out on New Year’s Eve when Uncle Victor, the ecologist, arrives. And while we await the answer, there’s lots of math and sorting and organizing happening — and plenty of space on each oversize page to showcase the penguin havoc as the popular increases.
The flat illustrations in black, white, orange and blue are beautiful and fit the story perfectly. A great addition to your child’s library!
