I try to read at least one chapter book during our penguin unit.  Mr. Popper’s Penguins is fun because most of them don’t realize it was a book before the movie.

Ms. Frizzle books are always a hit. The Penguin Puzzle book is informational and a fun read-aloud.

Finally, The Magic Tree House books are another tried and true favorite. In The Eve of the Emperor Penguin, Jack and Annie find themselves eye-to-eye with emperor penguins.

Magic Tree House has nonfiction companion books that are filled with fun facts for kids.
