You know I related to that penguin very deeply.
this is one of my husbands most favorite childhood books. I was able to find a copy of it and he was ecstatic to be able to read it to our children. it is now one of their favorites too!
As I was listening to my audiobook today about Ernest Shackleton's 1915 Endurance crew floating through the Antarctic on ice floes, I had a flashback to this book I loved from my early childhood. I haven't thought about it in over 30 years, but I remember clearly the wonderful illustrations of Pablo's igloo on his ever-shrinking bit of ice, and then the final page where he's in a hammock on a beach. I'm just so sad my children are already too old to appreciate this darling story!

This is the first book I learned to read on my own as a child (pre-k). I remember picking it out from the bookstore, insisting I would love it. I still love it and have a well-worn copy!
I never saw the Three Caballeros as a child and was deprived of this wonderful story of poor, clever, desperate Pablo the Penguin. Thankfully, the Spouse still had his childhood copy.
This is the first book I learned how to "read" because I made my parents read it to me over and over and over again every night. I practically memorized all of the pages before I actually learned how to properly read it.

My favorite part was when he finally got tot he hot place where he wanted to be. My bad part was when he was hanging down off of a cliff.
This is the first book I ever read and I still have it, still love it.
My youngest loves this book, it is one of her current favorite bedtime stories
