If you were a penguin . . .

You could swim really fast and toboggan on ice.

Sing a happy duet, once or twice.

You could live on land but dive under the sea.

There's a lot penguins can do, just like you and me

Wendell and Florence Minor create a charming tribute to all the playful fun and activity that comes with being a penguin which young readers can delight in too
