Book Review
This book will appeal to Preschool through first grade.  Pip is an adorable penguin.  She loves adventure but her parents are always warning her to not wander off and to be careful.  Pip ignores her parents warning and becomes lost.  As Pip looks for home she encounters many animals.  She asks each where is home.  Each animal has a different home.

Where is Home is an adorable book.  Children will love the illustrations.  The story is cute and appealing.  My grand children love this book.  They commented on the pictures and the story.  They liked the thought of the parents singing a song to Pip.  They insist that I make up a song about where we live and teach it to them.

I have to admit to being a big Karma Wilson fan and love her bear books and the adventures of the little mouse Mortimer. While this work of the baby penguin Pip is good, it did not seem to me to have the same flair as previous works by this author. Now don't take me wrong. Had I read this one first, I would have been absolutely completely satisfied, but with knowledge of what this author is capable of, I was just a wee bit disappointed.

Pip is a little penguin living with her mother and father in a very cold place as is the nature of penguins to do. She and her parents make up a happy family and have a happy home. One day, while her parents are gone, Pip goes off chasing a feather...as is the nature of all little ones, and is lost. This is the story of her adventures in her attempt to find her home.

The author has our little lost penguin asking various critters she meets in her search where home is. Each animal tell where there home is, but not Pip's home. The author presents us with some great little rhyming answers with each encounter.

The art work by Jane Chapman is excellent and she captures the personality of the animals along with the wild desolate landscape perfectly. All of the illustrations go perfectly with the story.

This is a great read along book and would certainly be great for a child or parent reader who is into penguins. The story is sweet and mellow and easy to follow.

I am giving this one four stars rather than five as I do not feel the book is of the same quality as previous works. I must say though that this is a good read and that kids do seem to enjoy both looking at the pictures and having the story read to them.
