Penguin Storytime for Preschoolers

How can we have a winter storytime program without Penguins? Penguins are cute and sooooo adorable, and kids love them too. There are many books, songs, movies, and rhymes about Penguins to choose from that’s why I decided to share a Penguin Storytime for Preschoolers.

The most challenging thing about planning a Penguin Storytime is which books to choose, since there are so many wonderful stories about Penguins.  Here are a few books to choose from.

The Emperor’s Egg by Martin Jenkins

This book is recommended for ages 4-8.  The illustrations are beautiful and will keep the attention of the children.  It’s great as an introduction to the wonders of penguins. It also includes footnotes for questions that inquiring little minds may ask.

Penguin Pete by Marcus Pfister

Pete is the littlest penguin who one day hopes to swim in the ocean like the rest of the flock.  This is the perfect book for teaching kids about growing and one day being capable of many things. Pfister’s illustrations are just as engaging as the story. This book is recommended for ages 3-5.



Here’s a fun preschool song I created called 5 Little Penguins!

One Little Penguin slides down the hill.

Where did he go? I don’t know.(shrug shoulders)

Four Little Penguins standing  still.

Here’s a cute song to use in between reading books or if kids are getting restless.

I’m a Little Penguin (sung to “I’m a Little Teapot”)

I’m a little penguin in the snow.

I slide on my tummy to and fro.

I eat the fish from the deep blue sea.

I’m black and white.

Just look at me.

At the end of the program, would be a great time to give out penguin stickers to the kids and applaud them for being such good listeners.  I also like to give them coloring sheets to go along with the theme.
