The delightful story of the life cycle of the Emperor Penguin in Antarctica, from dad’s protective care of the egg through the return of nurturing mom, this is nature at its finest.

Charming illustrations. A wonderful family read aloud. Part of the Beautiful Feet Around the World with Picture Books required resources. 29 pgs, sc. ~ Deanne
Can you imagine spending the winter outdoors in Antarctica without anything to eat? That's just what the male Emperor penguin does. While his mate is off swimming and catching loads of fish, he stands around in the freezing cold with an egg on his feet for two whole months, keeping it warm and waiting for it to hatch. Welcome to the story of the world's most devoted dad!

Introduce children to the fascinating and diverse world in which we live through delightful children’s books. Modeled after the Charlotte Mason philosophy of notebooking, this study focuses on the 4 R’s: reading, reasoning, relating and recording. Skills are age appropriate and gentle to engage and inspire children in the learning process. Geography, cultures, animals, folk tales and fables, music and art, are all covered, as are nature studies, poetry and recipes. Literature rich, the authors also provide additional literature and video resources to go deeper. Volumes are flexible for one semester (4 lessons/week) or one year (2 lessons/week). Beautifully illustrated with vibrant photographs and gorgeous art reproductions for the art studies. Black and white nature drawings are included and reproducible for individual families. Quality art supplies are recommended. Please note that a Japanese notebook, Tsubame, is recommended and sold by Beautiful Feet, but we currently do not offer it. ~ Deanne
