Playful Little Penguins - Mitton

Good rhyming and lots of fun to read. These penguins really play hard all day. The only thing I didn't like in the book is that they go and help a baby seal who has lost its mommy when his ice floe drifted away while she was hunting... Cute idea but seals eat penguins. Aside that, I think the seal part messes with the story. These penguins are playing so nicely together and really the author could have ended it without the seal part and it would have been a very nice, very realistic book. Cute characters though throughout the whole thing. Not my favorite book ever with the seal story in it but everything else was fun!
