Congratulations on your gold book award!
Did you know that there are 17 types of penguins in the world and only seven types live in Antarctica? This and other facts about these charming birds are what draw children to Patricia Gleichauf’s books about endangered sea creatures. This is the 6th and final book in her award winning Under the Sea series. Beautifully illustrated, A Penguin’s World is sure to delight children of all ages.
Ten types of penguins are endangered, vulnerable or threatened. Reasons for this include global warming and contamination of our oceans with trash and plastics. Proper disposal of trash, recycling of plastics, and turning off lights when leaving a room are ways we can be good stewards for penguins.
Pat Gleichauf lives in Upstate NY with her husband Jack. Writing for children is her dream come true. She is dedicated to children’s literacy and her goal is to “hook kids on books.” Pat does not miss an opportunity to read her books to students at schools and libraries. She uses this time to encourage children to follow their dreams.
