We love studying about penguins, especially around colder weather (Winter). So we have compiled a set of awesome penguin books for kids that are fiction, a list of non-fiction books, activities and printable notebooking pages. We hope you enjoy all of the ideas and inspiration. Enjoy them with your kids this season!
Take a look at all the different activities that will, together, complete a beautiful unit that you and your children will enjoy and you will all learn a ton about penguins from this unit.

Printable Notebooking Pages
Notebooking Pages are so much fun. We love that they give us the freedom to take our studies in any direction we feel like taking, If we are really interested in Emperor penguins, we will go in-depth with that. Maybe we love penguin fiction books and so we dwell on those for a few days. Or maybe on non-fiction books. 😉
All in all, we do have a set of these books at home because we have a tiny local library and it is hard to always get interlibrary loans. Here are some awesome titles. Maybe you can get some to gift to each of your kids this holiday season. And by the way, these notebooking pages have all kinds of topics, not just penguins! Take a look HERE and grab your 600-page sampler for free!
Non-Fiction Penguin Books for Kids
Here is the crux of the topic: non-fiction books. This is where we do most of our research and get most of our learning. As we learn about penguins, we take notes, make sketches and discuss them using our awesome notebooking pages. They certainly come in handy and they’re awesome to look back on when we are wanting to expound on our studies.
