The Little Penguin loves to explore and collect colorful gems on her excursions. When finding her treasures becomes more important than spending time with her friends, she sets out on increasingly risky expeditions to acquire more and more. Once the gems crowd her out of her home, she realizes that having the freedom to utilize her space and being generous of heart are the best treasures of all.
This charming social-emotional storybook empowers young readers to enjoy their toys and hobbies in moderation while appreciating the value of friendship and giving. The Little Penguin is an extra special book because it features gems that glitter on the front cover!
