I am 70+ years old, but I can STILL remember being read this book when I was in grade school. It gave me a love for books which continues to this day. So thank you, Sister Sylvia, for instilling in me the "Need to Read."
You know a book is good when your 6 and 9 year olds laugh out loud and beg you to repeat sections because they love it! This is a sweet wonderful read. I think it is part of Sonlight K or 1 - or was several years ago.
This children's classic was written by the Atwater's, ahusband and wife team, in 1938 and still is very popular. House painter, insatiable reader and dreamer Mr. Popper writes to Admiral Drake and receives back a bevy of penguins. And now he has to figure out how to afford family and penguins.
One of my favorite children's books! Mr. Popper is a house painter who's fascinated with polar exploration. He writes an explorer and receives his very own Antarctic penguin! And the fun begins! You'll laugh and laugh and laugh!
