Polar Region

It's been snowing here, which is a perfect time to talk about the polar region.  
BRRR! We talk about what kind of animals (even people) can live in an area that is so cold.

Tacky the Penguin


 Tacky is an odd bird who marches to the beat of his own drum. He's something of an eccentric, which wouldn't be a problem if all the other penguins weren't such...conformists.  This book teaches how everyone is unique and each person (or in this case, penguin) is special.
