The penguins love Christmas! They all have their scarves on and are ready for the morning fun to begin. When Pip looks at his fellow penguins, he sees nothing but sad faces. The penguins are missing something from their Christmas morning routine. Snow! Can Pip the Penguin take the other penguins' minds off not having snow, and create yet another happy Christmas? Let's find out.

Pip the Penguin Saves Christmas by Jane Finch is a fun and delightful pictorial book introducing young readers to the concept of a holiday routine, the winter season, and penguins. Children love penguins. They are cute, funny, and appear to be playing all the time as they slide around in the snow. Children can relate to them easily because penguins like to do much of the same things kids do in winter. Children often have a holiday routine each year, especially those who celebrate Christmas. When something is disrupted in that routine, a child can often become sad, much like the penguins in the story.

The author does a fantastic job keeping a child's attention with the exciting and delightful story plot and cute characters. Young readers will love the bright and colorful illustrations keeping them entertained throughout the entirety of the book. The book is recommended for ages 1 to age 6, age 6 being those who can read by themselves, so this book can be a beginner reader book. Adults may also enjoy reading this charming story to a young child at bedtime or during the holiday season.
