BOOK REVIEW: Wally the Warm-Weather Penguin by Stephanie M. Ward


Wally is an Emperor Penguin from Antarctica who isn't exactly like the other penguins. Wally is always cold. When he learns about the Galapagos Islands, he immediately sets sail in search of warm weather and discovers an amazing world of tap-dancing crabs, racing hundred-year-old tortoises and diving birds with bright blue feet. 

Wally the Warm-Weather Penguin is a delightful rhyming picture book for children aged 2 - 5. Children love the bright and colorful illustrations of the unique wildlife in the Galapagos Islands while the simple, rhyming text brings these curious animals to life. 

Come along with Wally and visit this very special place!

REVIEW BY: Angelina, age 9 years, 1 month


I really enjoyed and liked this book! 

This book is about a penguin that wanted to explore the world. He went to the beach and got some relaxation and also made some new friends like the turtle and seals. Wally and the animals explored and had so much fun! At the end, Wally gathered all his new friends with him and they took a picture :)

My favorite character is Wally because he is so curious and likes to explore, he is just like me! I ask a million questions and love to go new places. 

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 4 and up.
