Penguin on Vacation by Salina Yoon
Penguin's tired of the snow and cold--so he decides to go on vacation! But where should he go? And what new friends will he meet along the way?
Seasoned illustrator Salina Yoon's spare text and bright, energetic illustrations bring this favorite character to life, ensuring that readers will be clamoring for more Penguin stories--whether they find their home in the cold or the warm.
Once again, Salina Yoon has written a great children's book. My friend's son loved Salina's first Penguin book, Penguin and Pinecone. He also loved Penguin on Vacation.
Penguin on Vacation teaches children the importance of friendship, just like Penguin and Pinecone did. The book also teaches children to make the best of a bad situation. When Penguin went on vacation, he was upset. Vacation was nothing like what he thought it would be. He couldn't sled, ski, or skate. Instead of moping and sulking for the remainder of his vacation, he did something about it. He made a new friend and learned new things to do. Then he took the thins he learned and showed his friends how to do it when he got home. He also made a life long friendship with crab. I hope that Salina Yoon writes more books about Penguin and his friends.
I give Penguin on Vacation: 5/5.
