SIX LITTLE PENGUINS love colors, and they also love their mama! In pictures as bright as sunshine, imaginative little penguins use bold splashes of paint to vividly transform their white, icy world . . . as they create a very special surprise for Mama. Simple language helps children learn to identify colors, and a joyful, loving conclusion celebrate this penguin family’s happy sense of accomplishment . . . followed by a nap-time snuggle in Mama’s warm, comfortable lap!” [INSIDE JACKET]

[WC 205]
Six beret-wearing penguins (Tulip, Tiger Lily, Dandelion, Violet, Bluebell, and Broccoli) want to make a colorful picture for their mama, who loves colors as much as her adorable little penguins. Like most penguins, these six live in a mostly white world. Where will they paint a picture? Will it be on the white snow filling their world? And can you guess why the penguins are named as they are? When painting for mama, each penguin uses their favorite color. Can you figure out which color each penguin uses? How did you figure it out?
Penguins Love Colors brings children into the story by asking them questions, like those above, before revealing the answer. Young children will need to pay attention to answer the questions. Each penguin represents one of the colors; primary (red, blue, and yellow) or secondary (purple, orange, and green). HINT: check out their colorful berets.

The bright, bold colors, along with the cute penguins, make Penguins Love Colors an adorably accessible primer for young children. Aspinall’s picture book debut is perfect for any story time, but works best when followed by a creative activity using the six penguin-preferred colors. Parents and children will love how the penguins clean up and then cuddle for a nap.
What better way to learn colors than with these bright-eyed six little penguins.
