The Emperors Egg by Martin Jenkins
This non-fiction story brings young readers into the life of the world's most devoted dad! Can you imagine spending the winter outdoors in Antarctica without anything to eat? That’s just what the male Emperor penguin does. While his mate is off swimming and catching loads of fish, he stands around in the freezing cold with an egg on his feet for two whole months, keeping it warm and waiting for it to hatch.
Candlewick's press "Read and Wonder" these books combine science with wonder, great, elaborate language with beautiful art, and cuddle time with many fun learning conversations with your little one.
