Six of the most appealing penguins ever (featured in Sarah Aspinall's Penguins Love Colors, 2016) set off on an exciting Alphabet Hunt, a fun adventure where Mama has hidden all the alphabet letters in the snow. Each letter is marked by a clue (an "apple" leads to "a"). Will you help the penguins find all the hidden letters? Of course you will!

At the end of the joyful Alphabet Hunt, it's time to gobble up a big bowl of Mama's yummy alphabet soup, where words are hidden, too. All the penguins love their ABC's -- but not as much as they love Mama Penguin, who hugs them all in a warm, comforting expression of affection.

All children need to learn the alphabet, and from a big red heart ("h") to six sets of lucky underpants ("u"), children will recognize all the clues and letters. Perfect for school or home, Sarah Aspinall's irresistible penguins will help children learn their letters, with plenty of opportunities to review and test their knowledge. It's as simple as ABC!
