Book Review: The Big Penguin Party

penguinThe Big Penguin Party: A Find Me If You Can Adventure, Christian Jeremies & Fabian Jeremies, Sourcebooks Jabberwocky, 2015.

 This is a fun children’s book that combines the love of Where’s Waldo with I Spy. This is a fun interactive book that promotes parent/adult and child interaction while reading. In this way the illustrations in the book are just as important (if not more important) than the written story.

The penguins (and who doesn’t love penguins?) are preparing for Grandma Penguins 90th birthday party. The children are invited to help prepare by helping the penguins find various items.

Here’s the summary from the publisher:

A new discovery book in the tradition of I Spy and Where’s Waldo– with a fun penguin story that kids will love!

Can you spot what’s missing?

It’s Grandma’s birthday, and the whole Penguin family has arrived to celebrate! it’s shaping up to be a splendid time, but 90 penguins make a big mess…and now Grandma can’t find her special birthday costume!

It’s up to Peter and his friendly crocodile neighbor Percy to find each item of Grandma’s costume in time. And they definitely need your help-so, quick! There’s something lost on every page; can your find it?

You read the story to discover what the penguins are looking for. Then, you find the characters listed at the beginning of the book. Each spread is two pages and you have to find about six characters in each. The pictures are bright, colorful, and fun! And it’s easy. It’s a bit of a challenge finding the penguins and the items missing.

But, it’s a lot of fun!
