Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1—The author of Giraffes Can't Dance is back with another animal story about overcoming obstacles. In this case, it's a little penguin's fear of water. While the other penguins frolic merrily in the icy Antarctic ocean, little Pip-Pip remains ashore, too afraid to join in the fun. Saddened by loneliness and the teasing cries of "Scaredy-Pip-Pip" from the other penguins, the little penguin sits alone until his parents intervene. While his dad is less than understanding, his mother's gentle approach pays off. She validates his fears, provides reassurance and support, and encourages him to think positively rather than let his fears hold him back. The illustrations complement the story, with dark, murky blues depicting the unknown depths of the ocean and vibrant yellow skies representing Pip-Pip's joy at discovering a new ability. VERDICT A welcome addition to the wealth of stories for young children on overcoming fears. The pleasant rhyme scheme makes it an excellent storytime or classroom read-aloud.—Kimberly Tolson, Concord Free Public Library, MA
