Mr. Popper's Penguins is one of those classic childhood books kids always remember — it ranks up there with Charlotte's Web and James and the Giant Peach. The chapter book's witty (albeit dated) dialogue, clever characters, and ethical predicament make it as enjoyable today as it was in the 1930s (it was a 1939 Newbery Honor Book winner). In fact, many teachers use it as part of their language arts curriculum. A good fit for most first- and second-grade readers, Mr. Popper's Penguins can also be read aloud to kindergartners. 139 pages.
