Can there be such a thing as too many adorable penguins? One day a penguin sees a most unusual sight: a hat floating in the icy water. Pop! Out of the hat pops a baby penguin and then another one… and another one! At first the mama penguin is happy for the company, until she realizes that taking care of a family is very hard, very tiring work, and what she could really use is just a moment alone. Perfect for any mama penguin with a family or classroom full of mischievous little ones, this adorable debut reminds us that it's together time that's best of all. The author grew up in West Caldwell.
