(Grades 3-6) Fantastic book about how children can help save the endangered Galapagos Penguins. Kid friendly nonfiction text features. I enjoyed the website that is provided at the back of the book. Students can go to the site, enter a book code, and conducted more research. Many of the teachers at my school use penguins to teach students about nonfiction text. This is a splendid book that has been added to my collection.

I read this to my son after he picked it out in the school library. I found it entertaining with beautiful photos. The facts and definitions did not cause a six year old to be bored while listening. I even learned more about these penguins with their year-round breeding season, prey, and El Niño killing their prey.
