Why We Like It: It’s Flo’s first day of preschool. She has her lunch in a pink bucket and a new bow, but soon her bucket disappears! Does her classmate Bob have anything to do with the bucket mystery? How these two little penguins meet and become friends is a charming story little ones will love. The story is designed to help ease back to school jitters by showing kids that they too will make new friends.

The penguins are super cute and the book’s illustrations are great. Large simple shapes and uncluttered pastel backgrounds will appeal to very young children. Kids will also enjoy spotting the pink pail, which is right in front of Flo’s eyes. Plus Bob’s antics are pretty darn funny, which can help ease the tension of starting a new experience.
