✰✰✰½ Snowflakes are falling, and winter is coming. Five little penguins prepare for winter fun by finding their mittens, boots, and scarves before venturing out into the snow. After playing in the cold, warm cookies await before snuggling into bed. Hurrah! Winter is here.
The Bottom Line: The use of large type and simple words that repeat make this a winner for beginning readers. Soft illustrations convey the story well, and the use of a limited color palette will keep little ones focused on the story. Recommended for or bedtime reading for kids in preschool.
