The Welcome to the World series has opened its borders and is exploring animals from around the world. With lively and informative text and color photographs, these books promise to deliver you to exotic lands-and you won`t even have to leave your house! Penguins have adapted to more habitats and climates than any other animal in the world, living on sandy beaches in Africa, windswept hills in South America and New Zealand, and icebergs in Antarctica. They can swim hundreds of miles in search of food, and their tuxedo-like coloring helps to hide them from predators and maximize the sun`s warmth. Full of fun facts and amazing photographs, WELCOME TO THE WHOLE WORLD OF PENGUINS is a great way to learn about these curious creatures.
