“A Mountain of Friends” by Kerstin Schoene is a wonderful children's book about a little penguin who recognizes that he is a bird but is sad because he can't fly like other birds. No matter how hard he tries he can't seem to fly.
All the other animals who are his friends begin to think of ways to help get him high enough so he can soar above the clouds and the animals recruit the reader to assist in helping them help the penguin.
“A Mountain of Friends” by Kerstin Schoene: a darling book with cute illustrations and a creative way of getting the reader involved!
