If You Were a Penguin by Wendell and Florence Minor- What a great book. Everything about it from the vocab to the illustrations are wonderful. Great for a broad age group.

Playful Little Penguins by Tony Mitton-A nice read aloud book, very colorful

A Penguin Story by Antoinette Portis

Penguin by Polly Dunbar

Some Things Change by Mary Murphy - A simple graphic illustrated book about a little penguin and his mom seeing things change around them.

Up and Down by Oliver Jeffers - A little bit longer story so use it as your opener. The text and story is simple enough for toddlers as well as pre-schoolers to enjoy. Little penguin wants to learn to fly but his wings really weren't built for it. He figures out a way to fulfill his dreams of flight but at he expense of losing his best friend, a little boy. Will he be able to reconnect with his friend, and will his first flight be a disaster? A cute story all around.

Penguin and Pinecone by Salina Yoon- "When you give love, it grows" is the moral of this delightful storytime read. Adorable illustrations and simple heartwarming text makes this a sure bet for toddler storytime.
