Turtle's Penguin Day by Valeri Gorbachev

Story and Art by Valeri Gorbachev
Publisher: Alfred A, Knopf New York
Five out of Five Stars

"That night, Little Turtle ate fish-shaped crackers
with dinner because penguins love fish.
And before he went to sleep, Little Turtle brushed 
his penguin beak."

Little Turtle's father read about penguins before Little Turtle went to bed. He decided to be a penguin for a day. His friend and teacher welcomed his experimental attitude. The story is written in simple sentences with a lot of dialogue. I like the way how the teacher supports its students being penguins. I can see many younger readers acting like penguins after reading this heartwarming book. The author drew charming illustrations as well. The book represents a perfect classic picture-book world.
