Cloudy days change to sunny Water changes to ice Ice changes to water

The world is filled with changes some we can control and some we can’t. They just happen. Some changes are exciting. Some are surprising. And some changes can even be a little bit scary. But some things, like a mother’s love, are best because they never change at all.
In this latest book featuring the dear little penguin, Mary Murphy once again has created an endearing and reassuring book that captures the complex simplicity of childhood. Children will be drawn to the bright, bold illustrations and to the similarities they see between themselves and penguin.

Mary Murphy has written and illustrated many bright, beguiling children’s books, including I Make a Cake, I Am an Artist, and Please Be Quiet. Ms. Murphy lives in Dublin, Ireland.

About the Author:

Mary Murphy has published several children's books, including I LIKE IT WHEN, which won the Parenting Magazine Gold Medal. She lives in Dublin, Ireland.

From Publishers Weekly:

What's black and white and likely to be read all over? This cheery paper-over-board addition to Murphy's (Please Be Quiet!; My Puffer Train) canon of penguin books for toddlers. Here, a young penguin observes how the things in its life and surroundings are apt to change a cardboard box becomes a ship, water turns to ice, walls in the home are painted different colors. Moods and minds change, too, a fact that seems to make each day a new adventure. But while many things are in flux, the book's final spread offers a reassuring exception: the constant love of a parent. "Some things stay the same," reads the text, as the art depicts a parent-and-child hug. Everything about the book's design is appealingly bold, from the solid-colored backgrounds and thick, hand-lettered style of the text to the penguin's bright fried-egg, yellow-on-white belly. Young children will appreciate the verisimilitude and comforting notes that Murphy hits just right. Ages 1-4.
