Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Newbery Medal-winning author Cynthia Rylant and Caldecott Honor-winning illustrator Christian Robinson pair up to tell this wintry story about five little penguins enjoying a snowy day. <br> <br> Snowflakes? Many snowflakes. Winter is coming. So begins this ever-so-simple story. As the snow starts to fall, the excited penguins pull out scarves, mittens, heavy socks, and boots, and Mama helps them bundle up. But when it's time to go out, one timid penguin decides to stay home. Filled with waddling baby penguins, playful text, and delightful illustrations, this book feels like a young picture-book classic in the making.

Horn Book Review

It's winter, and five little penguins living in an igloo joyfully bundle up and head out for a glorious day of sledding--until Mama comes to fetch them and bring them home for cocoa, cookies, and bed. Wonderfully tactile acrylic and cut-paper collage illustrations paired with a spare, evocative text capture the siblings' idyllic day. (c) Copyright 2017.
