A Delightful Read From Beginning to End

Where is Home Little Pip? I read this to my kids just the other evening and we really enjoyed reading about Pips adventure. When we transitioned from one page to another my kids anticipated who Pip was going to meet next. At each encounter Pip was treated to a cute poem about where each creature felt home was to them. There is a slow building to a great moral in this delightful book. Pips adventure is fast becoming a staple read for bedtime. My kids ages 7 & 3 loved this book.

Great Book, Especially for Penquin Lovers!

This story is delightful. What child wouldn't love to snuggle up with a parent or grandparent and listen to the story of a baby penquin named Little Pip getting lost and finding his way home. Children will see pictures of animals that live where penquins live: the mighty blue whale, the kelp gull, and the sled dogs. Like Wilson's other books, the animals talk and they tell Little Pip where their homes are The illustrations, which are an important part of children's books, are just beautiful. I must admit, however, that Bear Snores on is still my favorite Karma Wilson book.

Delightful book!

"Where is Home, Little Pip?" is a delightful tale about a little boy penguin named Pip who gets lost after chasing after a feather. Trying to find his way home, he meets up with several other animals and asks "Where is Home" Each animal gives a lovely rhyme back describing their home. Pip eventually finds his Mama and Papa. This is one of the most enjoyable childrens book I have read in a long time! Very beautifully illustrated! An interesting and engaging story that will sure to be a favorite at YOUR home!

Wonderful story about a lost little penguin who finds her way home

Little Pip is a small baby penguin, one who always listens to her parents when they tell her to stick close and then sing about home. One day though, she chases after a black feather, so lovely against the white snow, and soon finds herself lost and alone. Trying to find her home, she asks a whale and a gull and some huskies how to find home, but none of them can help. Eventually, cold and sad, she sings her song about home to try to feel better and her parents, following the sound of her song, find her and reunite the family. This book is well written and beautifully illustrated. The penguins are all extremely expressive and the landscape sets the stage perfectly for the story. The rhymes about home capture the attention of younger children and will help older children read along. I lent this book to my mom to read to her kindergarden class and it was extremely popular. A wonderful book that stresses the importance of home and family and leaves readers with a smile. I hope we see more books about Little Pip in the future.
