Meet the Persevering Penguins and Pals
About the Book
This #1 Amazon Bestseller in three categories was written by kids for kids! Three amazing cousins wanted to share an engaging way for little ones to embrace diversity, inclusion, and what it means to be successful global citizens. They created this warm, welcoming motivational book for children that celebrates leadership and reminds young readers that every great leader began as a little leader, taking their first steps towards something big.
With the help of a penguin family, friendly otters, a pride of lions, a group of iguanas, a flock of nightingales and one determined gerbil, these young authors have written a motivational children’s book that is both fun and educational.
The simple language and beautiful illustrations bring the animal families to life and are sure to keep young children engaged in the bigger message. This book is perfect for reading aloud to children ages 4-8 in the classroom setting and at home. It can also be used for classroom discussions up to the fifth grade.
