Mr. Popper's Penguins

Mr. Popper's Penguins by Richard and Florence Atwater tells the unusual story of a man who dreams big about exploring the North and South Poles! In this book he is surprised to find a penguin delivered to his door one day and sets about making room for this penguin in his family's home. If you could adopt any odd pet, what would it be? How would you take care of this strange animal? What would you feed him ? What would it be like to own a _______??

  • Think about it and post your thoughts on our first blog post for the 2B Flying Pigs Blog this year!
