Featured Book of the Month - January 2015

We are pleased to announce our January children's title for the Featured Book of the Month program!

Mr. Popper's Penguins
by Richard and Florence Atwater


The lovable Mr. Popper dreams of being an intrepid Antarctic explorer; living life among the

penguins alongside his hero, Admiral Drake. So he is shocked one day when the Admiral

responds to his fan letter by sending him a package containing a real, live penguin! Soon, this

penguin is joined by another; and before long Mr. Popper has an ice rink in the basement and a

dozen delightful penguins living in his house. With hardly enough money to feed his family, and

an ever-increasing bill for raw fish and canned shrimp, what can the wonderfully imaginative

Mr. Popper do but train his penguins and take the show on the road!

It's everything penguins in January!   Learn everything you always wanted to know about penguins, play some penguin games, and draw a cartoon penguin
