Five Little Penguins

author: Lily Murray
illustrator: Holly Surplice

Five little penguins went out one day,
over the hills and far away . . .
Mama Penguin said, Hurry back to me!
Now how many penguins can you see?

Join five adorable penguins on a lift-the-flap walk through a winter wonderland. There’s so much to see as Mama Penguin and her chicks waddle through a frosty forest, skate down an icy river, and sled down snowy slopes. Along the way, they meet all kinds of festive animals playing in the snow. But wait—the chicks are disappearing one by one. Whatever could they be up to? Lift the flaps to find the chicks and discover a fantastic surprise ending.

Based on the nursery rhyme “Five Little Ducks,” this cheerful lift-the-flap book is perfect for sharing at Christmas.
