It’s World Penguin Day!

Penguins are one of our favourite animals and we always make sure that we visit them when we go to the zoo. As it’s World Penguin Day we decided to look for penguins on our bookshelf and we found that we had more than we realised!

  1. How many years has world penguin day been running for, I wonder? Penguins were hard to avoid this past winter.
    We like Lost and Found – there’s a great dress up area in Seven Stories of the book.

    • I don’t know how long World Penguin Day has been running! I really want to visit Seven Stories, I’ll look out for the dress up area 🙂
