Reviews

Review by: School Library Journal - November 1, 2011
"Gail Gibbons's book presents plenty of basic facts about penguins in a distinct and accessible way, describing physical appearance, adaptations, enemies, habitat, life cycle, and lifestyles. Several kinds of penguins are compared side by side, and their similarities and differences are indicated. The dangers threatening penguin colonies are described and the steps that are being taken to protect them are explained. Simple, uncluttered illustrations are labeled, and difficult terms are explained. Narrator George Mazzoli begins by explaining that he will read the text at the bottom of each page first, followed by the descriptive labels on the illustrations. He reads expressively and at a pace that permits students to peruse the illustration and digest the facts before he moves on. Page-turn signals are optional. Sound effects, such as the wind, the sea, and penguin calls enhance the narration. An admirable presentation of Gibbons's terrific introduction to penguins."
Review by: AudioFile Magazine - August 5, 2011
"The audio format is a fine enhancement for Gail Gibbons's nonfiction work. Listeners will especially enjoy pouring over Gibbons's realistic illustrations as George Mazzoli presents the text. Gibbons's intent is to impart knowledge in both breadth and depth in a child-friendly manner. Mazzoli's steady, clear narration is perfect for articulating facts about these birds of the Arctic. Listeners will relish hearing about the variety of penguins and their distinctive characteristics and learning about the origins of penguin flippers and warming habits. Penguin calls and sounds from the habitat complete the recording."
