A gorgeous first glimpse into the natural world of penguins from Cathryn and John Sill, creators of the award-winning About… and About Habitats series.

“An essential tool for capturing the attention of any elementary level student!” —NSTA Recommends

In this addition to the acclaimed About… series, former educator and author Cathryn Sill uses simple, easy-to-understand language to teach children what penguins are, their diversity, how they look, how they move, what they eat, and where they live.

With beautifully detailed, realistic paintings, noted wildlife illustrator John Sill introduces readers to a variety of penguins, from the Adélie to the Rockhopper to the Emperor. An afterword provides more details.

About Penguins is part of the award-winning About… series. Ideal for casual exploration as well as for early childhood and elementary science units on animals.
