Tis the Season – Day 24

Merry Christmas season everyone! To celebrate all the holiday festivities, every day in December I’m posting a review on a Christmas book. I hope you all join me this December to enjoy some fun and seasonal cheer.

Santa and Joe have a great relationship. Joe is very specific with what he wants and Santa always complies. Like with the fire-engine-red car he wanted a few years ago and Santa came through…mostly. But this year, Joe was very, very specific. What he wants this year most of all is a penguin! And on Christmas Day when Joe gets his penguin, Osbert, he couldn’t be happier! That is, he’s happy until he realizes how hard it is to be a best friend and companion to someone who loves the freezing cold, pickled fish for breakfast, and ice-cold baths. So Joe writes one more letter to Santa to thank him for listening to what he wants – and to fix everything up for Osbert just right in his new home.

My Penguin Osbert is a really fun book to read. Written by Elizabeth Cody Kimmell and illustrated by H.B. Lewis, this story will be fun for kids to read, especially if they harbor some imaginative Christmas wishes themselves. The narrative is cute and easy to follow and the pictures are colorful and childlike. Pick up My Penguin Osbert for some winter laughs before the end of the holidays!

QoTD: I’m probably asking for my own head, but which are cuter: penguins or polar bears?
