I suppose it is safe to say I pick a lot of funny books to read to my boys. Here is another one I was looking at as a possibility to read for our Kids' Night Out (story walk) event here at our school. It was my runner-up only because I found one my own kids liked better. I did have to explain the twist at the end. However, that, to me, does not take away from the book because good books spark dialogue! This one would need conversation throughout, I think. I liked the book overall because it seems like the father could not possibly be paying attention to the son and his request for a penguin, and it is funny to see everything that goes on along with some great illustrations. Who doesn't enjoy a penguin with a bike helmet? Check it out. Kids will love it!
