Last week at Baby Book Club it was all about penguins and more specifically Polly Dunbar's Penguin. Everyone was fascinated by the story of a boy who receives a present of a penguin and tries his hardest to make him laugh, play, talk... 'but Penguin said nothing'. The babies enjoyed describing what was going on in the pictures and joining in with the repetitive text.
We then had fun with glue and cotton wool and made our very own penguins, who may or may not be more talkative than the original one.
As promised, here are the links to the songs and videos, for more penguin-mania!
