Book Overview

It's the day all baby penguins are going to learn to swim, but Little Pip is afraid.... Nothing scares Little Pip more than the thought of swimming in the deep dark ocean -- she would much rather learn to fly just like other birds do. But soon it comes time for all the young penguins to learn how to swim, and while Little Pip might not be able to fly the way she wants to, she discovers she can soar in ways she never thought possible.

Many of us have enjoyed Wilson and Chapman's initial Little Pip tale, Where Is Home, Little Pip? It was a warm reassuring story for youngsters to hear or read. The same is true of Don't Be Afraid, Little Pip, again relating to a feeling young ones can understand, fear, and presenting the joy and adventure that awaits when fears are overcome. This story begins on the day all young penguins will be learning to swim. Oh, oh, Pip is afraid, thinking, "The ocean looked awfully dark and deep. She gazed up. The blue sky looked bright and cheerful. I think I'd much rather fly than swim..." So, when the other young penguins lined up to go into the ocean Pip skittered away down the shoreline. First, she asked a Snow Petrel to show her how to fly, and then a Giant Albatross. They were both helpful, but, after all, penguins are not meant to fly. It takes Pip a tumble and some time but she learns how important it is to be yourself, and discovers the great happiness to be found in doing just that. The acrylic full page illustrations are the beautiful colors of sea, sky and shore. And Pip, of course, with her sprouting feathers is endearing. - Gail Cooke
