One day, little Penguin finds an unusual object in the snow. Whatever it was though...it seemed cold. Penguin made it a nice warm scarf and spent many days with it. Unfortunately, the snowy ice is no place for a pinecone so Penguin packs it up for a journey back to the forest where it belongs. This was a wonderful story about caring and friendship that will warm you from head to toe. After the two are separated, they both are reunited and Penguin finds a big surprise. They spend a fun day together and soon it is time for Penguin to travel back home. Even though they are sad to be apart, they knew what was best for one another. The text is simple but the illustrations are cute and heart-warming adding even more to this loving tale making it a great read on a cold winter's day. I think this is a "just right book" for ages 2-7.~
