- Can A Penguin Fly? -
When Penguin spots a sign that says, Flight School We Teach Birds To Fly, it’s just what he needs, since he feels he has the soul of an eagle. Unfortunately, Teacher and Flamingo aren’t so sure about a penguin flying.
Penguin insists that he has the heart of an eagle, so they let him begin flight school. After much practice, it’s time for all the birds to take their first flight. But when Penguin’s turn comes he plonks straight down into the water.
“I’m sorry, birdie,” said Teacher. “Penguins just aren’t built to fly.”As Penguin dejectedly waddles away Flamingo has an idea,
“Wait!”What idea? Surely he isn't going to continue Penguin's lessons, is he?
What I Liked Most: The illustrations are fun and I especially found Penguin cute. This is a wonderful book that demonstrates helping others and perseverance.
