Penguin in Love

Today* is Lucky's second birthday. (Today the day that I wrote this post.  His birthday was actually 4 months and 2 days ago.  I guess I moved this post around and forgot, whoops!)  I cannot believe how time has flown away.  It felt appropriate to do a different type of book review, a review of the children's book Penguin in Love by Salina Yoon.

Yoon has published many different penguin books.  At 18 months, they were a little long for Lucky to sit through my Keith and I enjoyed the stories.  One of Keith's colleagues gave Lucky Penguin in Love for his first birthday party, knowing that we love Penguins and my love for knitting.

Yes, these penguins knit!  I don't want to spoil the story, but let's just say that it is a book that you could give to any knitting expecting parent.  Don't worry, Bootsie wasn't just knitting because she was lonely, it gave her comfort as something she love to do.

I like that the story features both male and female knitters.  Any knitter I know will gasp at the horror of this segment of the story.

An adventure of friends who knit together, what could be better than that?  I'm so serious, if you know any parents-to-be or parents of young children who knit, you should really buy them this book!
