This book is a good example of rhyming words and can be used to help illistrate simple writing using rhyming words. You can also use it as an example of terse verse writting.

Repitition of words
Recalling, retelling - what did the pengine do? What did the Puffin do?

This is an easy short read-aloud; alternating double-page spreads show penguins, and on the next spread puffins, doing two rhyming activities:
'penguins glare, penguins share'. Good for the older toddler, especially when practicing pattern prediction, but my penguin-fan five year old still enjoys it. Pair with "Busy Busy Penguins."

This book is charming. It uses a broad vocabulary and has beautiful photographs. It is simple enough to read to a small child, but it has engaging facts in a more scientific couple of pages toward that back, that will entertain older children, as well.

This book worked well for storytime. Even though we had it in the non-fiction section it wasn't as factual and didn't lend itself as well to a "try non-fiction with your kids" pep talk. However the real photos are great and a nice diversion from illustrations.

A nice easy read. Rhyming is always pleasant on the ears (unless you hate it). Plus, kids learn new words like glare and stare and peer. What fun is that! And most kiddies don't know what puffins are. They get to hear about this NEW, sweet bird AND vamp up their knowledge about penguins.

The photos in this one are lovely, but the book is a touch long for its concept.
