This lovely new title looks at the lives of penguins - from their birth to growing up, how they feed, grow, hunt, rest, and clean. Glorious, large colour photographs show the penguin at every stage of its life. Simple, engaging text allows young readers to understand a penguin's life. There is also information about the threats that penguins face in the wild and how we can help them to survive in the future.

The author, Patricia Kendell, writes material to help children understand why wildlife is in danger and what they can do to help. She is also a part-time Education Officer with WWF-UK. The consultant, Keith Reid, is a marine biologist at the British Antarctic Survey in Cambridge. He and his team conduct research into the potential effects of fishing and climate change on penguins in the Antarctic.Review:
The real test for any marketing claims laid on classroom resources lies with real classroom practice and exposure to real children. In the Wild books passed this test with flying colours when I used them recently across three reception classes, and they generated a real buzz of enthusiastic sharing and questioning!. Its success is due to its fabulous photography, making all aspects of the animal's life visually accessible, and giving rise to excellent opportunities for discussion and questioning. -- TES Teacher 20050304
