The Little Penguin by Sheri Fink tells the tale of a small penguin who loved having fun, swimming, and gliding all over the place. One day, the little penguin accidentally ends up in a new and mysterious place where she finds the most beautiful and colorful gems. She takes them home and begins a mission to find more, but when her friends start to look for her she wants to hide her new treasures. Having gathered even more shiny gems, will the little penguin finally be happy or will she learn that it is better to share your treasures with others?

The Little Penguin by Sheri Fink is a sweet story that teaches children that instead of bringing them happiness, greed and selfishness will only result in loneliness. Sharing with the people around you is much better than keeping everything to yourself. This story was so well written with such an important message. Especially when they are younger, children tend to have a hard time sharing and I think this story will help teach them that it isn’t always best to keep nice things to yourself. This way everyone can share in the happiness. The bright and colorful illustrations for this book added to the charm of the story and will make it appealing to young children. I think that Fink did an amazing job with this story and I would recommend this for young children.
