(Sung to: "I'm a Little Teapot")
I'm a little penguin, on the ice.
I think the cold is very nice.
I can hop around first once, then twice.
I think cold is very nice.

Don't you wonder if penguins might be the only creatures enjoying this cold weather? Fortunately, it was warm inside at the library today as we read stories about penguins and made a penguin craft! We read Playful little penguins by Tony Mitton, a story based on real penguin activities, Penguin says "Please" by Michael Dahl, a lovely little book from a series about manners, and Turtle's penguin day by Valeri Gorbachev, a funny story about a turtle who, after dreaming about penguins, decides to dress and act like a one for the day!

Our craft involved assembling pre-cut pieces to make a penguin and adding googly eyes! Then we daubed silver glitter paint all over. When it dried, it looked just like glittery Antarctic snow!
Did you know penguins huddle together to help stay warm? Try it! Get and give lots of hugs these cold winter days!
