Description: This tale based on a true story about a charming penguin family living in New York City Central Park Zoo will capture the hearts of penguin lovers everywhere. Roy and Silo, two male penguins, are a little bit different. They cuddle and share a nest like the other penguin couples, and when all the others start hatching eggs, they want to be parents, too. Determined and hopeful, they bring an egg-shaped rock back to their nest and proceed to start caring for it. They have little luck, until a watchful zookeeper decides they deserve a chance at having their own family and gives them an egg in need of nurturing. The dedicated and enthusiastic fathers do a great job of hatching their funny and adorable daughter, and the three can still be seen at the zoo today. (32 pgs) Ages 4-8
