It's Really Cool ... To Be a Penguin!
It's Really Cool ... To Be a Penguin. We live'n in snow and ice, but we never dig in. Our feathers keep us warm, and so very cozy, From weather so cold and ever so "frozey."
We can't fly but we can swim and "swish." Our wings are for swimming and for catching fish. We slide on tummies down under the ice, Where we swim, swoop and loop, ever so nice.

Every day, many children watch as a parent goes off to a military assignment, often in dangerous situations. Most children will later welcome home their parents who served without incident. Others, however, will greet a parent who suffered a head injury, which changes all their lives. While brain injury is a complex topic, it is an unfortunate fact that certain types of brain injuries, which are all too common in military personnel, affect a person's behaviors such as mood and temper. A previously kind and loving parent may become irritable, short-fused and be intolerant of frustration after a brain injury. To a child, this change can be scary and overwhelming. Children may not understand why Mom or Dad is so different and may blame themselves for their parent's moodiness. With illustrations by Valerio Mazzoli, this book offers young readers practical coping tools to empower children to feel confident about themselves and become a more active participant in his or her injured parent's life.
From the Author: "This is the story of my childhood during the mid-1950's in South Carolina. It’s the story of new friendships, new adventures, ordinary family life, and my introduction to racial prejudice. All of the people are real, and the stories are as true as I can recall. Since young children tend to exaggerate and embellish stories, to add details, and forget others, I cannot guarantee complete accuracy. Of course, I also had to fill in some of the blanks in my memory, because the events occurred about 60 years before this book was written, and memories fade with the passing of time. This book does, however, accurately depict conditions and attitudes in South Carolina during the 1950's, and all historical references are correct. Included are several photos from the National Archives. A glossary will help the reader with unfamiliar words. Most of the words in the glossary are translated into Spanish. All the definitions and explanations are in English."
A puzzle, a work of art, and a collection of classic American songs, all in an innovative book by one of the world's foremost contemporary artists.
Every page of this book is filled with secret code. It seems like Chinese calligraphy, but it’s not. It seems like you can’t read it, but you can. Once the pieces of the puzzle start falling into place, you will understand it all. And some of it may even strike you as strangely familiar . . .
Twelve traditional American songs, such as "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" and "Yankee Doodle," as well as five classic songs from Chinese culture, are written here in artist Xu Bing's unique "square word calligraphy," which uses one-block words made of English letters. From a distance, these pieces are beautiful but unintelligible art. Up close, they are a mystery just waiting to be solved—like the fine art version of "Magic Eye."
For readers ages 7 and up, Look! What Do You See? is perfect for long car rides or coded notes to friends. Incredibly intricate and visually engaging, this is a book that children and adults will return to again and again.
