Kids liked it. Cute enough pictures and rhymes. Just nothing that really made it STAND OUT from the pack.
Kaethe
The penguins are currently playful, but since there's an odd mix of species and a leopard seal mom, and her harp seal baby, I think the author maybe doesn't know what he's writing about. And since the young penguin-fancier in the house reads a lot of nonfiction, the mistakes were glaring.

Follow playful penguins on their rhyming way throughout their day.

Good for preschool storytimes.

NZ edition: Perky little penguins.
Illustrations: Cute, lovely, colourful pictures.
Text: Simple, short sentences. Curvy writing. Rhyming story.
Age level: Suit 3+ group.
Nice story, not one I would enjoy reading to a group...not much opportunity to ham it up with the kids. Annoying change of language (for me)...mother seal goes from, Ma to Mama and then Mum.
Emily
This book is all about playful penguins and how they like to swim, jump, eat, sled, and just have fun. The playful penguins meet a sad little seal who they quickly comfort and become friends with. This book rhymes and uses lots of adjectives. It would be good to also read to students about including all friends in the class.
Amy
I liked Playful Little Penguins, and so did my niece and nephew, but it wasn't anything particularly special. Very standard children's fare. Certainly nothing wrong with it, but not much to write home about either.
Beth
Adorable rhyming story of infectiously cheerful penguins having fun, and cheering up a lost seal pup.

Good for older-preschool storytimes if the group isn't too large.
Paul
Congratulations may be due to the author for taking a subtle route in this poetic examination of the relationship between perkiness and extreme cold.
The Library Lady
I almost always love penguin books, and this one is a winner. Wonderful bouncy rhymes match the vibrant, exuberant penguins. Lots of fun!

adorable illustations and story! I love Tony Mitton.. a perfect read to a preschool class or storytime about penguins!
Lesley
The illustrations are big and colorful, but I didn't connect with the story.
Valerie
no, no, no! Too busy, no story. But penguins are such cute critters.
Rosa
