FABULOUS FINISH: One Day on Our Blue Planet…in the Antarctic
One Day on Our Blue Planet…in the Antarctic
By Ella Bailey
Flying Eye Books, 2016. Nonfiction.
This book presents one day in the life of an Adelie penguin chick. It reads like a picture book with only a sentence or two on each page but still teaches clear facts about a penguin’s life cycle and living in the Antarctic. The winter colors are lovely and the animal illustrations are sweet and accessible but still include details that make them recognizable as real species. Readers will enjoy finding the little penguin chick amidst the other penguins and animals that fill each page. The end papers are a great bonus as they show all the creatures of the southern ocean that are featured in the book and their species name.
Also available: One Day on Our Blue Planet…in the Savannah.
