Pick up a Penguin

Today is World Penguin Day celebrating our tuxedo clad flightless feathered friends who walk with waddle but swim with amazing speed and grace.
I'm reminded of the story 'And Tango Makes Three' by Justin Richardson and Peter Parnell. The story is set in Central Park Zoo and tells the tale of two chinstrap penguins Roy and Silo and how they become parents to Tango.
It's a great story wonderfully illustrated by Henry Cole - yet the American Library Association reports that 'And Tango Makes Three' was the most challenged book of 2006 to 2010, except for 2009 when it was the second most challenged.
But just like the story says this penguin family isn't really any different from everyone else - "..they (Roy, Silo and Tango) snuggled together and, like all the other penguins in the penguin house, and all the other animals in the zoo, and all the families in the big city around, they went to sleep."
Penguins perhaps have a thing or two they can teach some people too!
