Periwinkle's Journey #bookreview

Periwinkle's Journey by Judy Petersen-Fleming and Suzy Spafford is a wonderful book about an adorable penguin named Periwinkle. Through the story Periwinkle worries about being different than the other penguins. Being blue colored is different. Her mother reminds here that it is not what is on the outside but the inside that matters. Through her journey to go to her cousin's birthday party in Antarctica she gains the confidence to see that it is okay to be different. This is such a sweet reminder. This book has a great moral but it is also a neat jumping point for geography and different species of penguins. As homeschoolers, we love books like this! They make learning fun and easy!


Children will want to cuddle up with the adorable animals depicted in Spafford’s full-color illustrations, from penguins to koalas to albatrosses to whales, as they read this entertaining and educational tale. Young readers will learn about the 17 types of penguins, illustrated by Periwinkle’s numerous cousins, as well as discover fun facts such as their inability to fly, penchant for rock collecting, and variety of habitats from Australia to Antarctica to the Gal├ípagos (but not the North Pole, where the polar bears live!). Periwinkle makes many new friends on her journey to the South Pole, and along the way discovers the depths of her own bravery as well as the important truth that what makes us different also makes us special.
