Summary

Summary

Wellington the penguin loves where he lives-it's cold, snowy, and full of snowflakes that sparkle. After seeing a picture of a beautiful flower garden in a book, Wellington decides that he wants to grow a garden, too. "Flowers can't grow in the snow," says his friend Ivan. "It's just too cold!" But Wellington is set on having a garden-and with a lot of determination and a bit of creativity; he finds a way to make his dream come true.

School Library Journal Review

PreS-K-Young Wellington is a perseverant penguin fascinated with flowers. He tells his friends that he is going to grow a garden, but they are quick to let him know that it is impossible for flowers to survive in the snow and cold. He is not deterred, however. Inspired by the shiny wrapper from his cookie, he decides to make a magical garden from colorful wrappers, buttons, seashells, etc. The garden looks great, everyone agrees. That night, though, a storm blows in and ruins everything. Undaunted, Wellington creates another magical garden, and this time animals from all over the world come to admire it. The brightly colored characters and the garden are set against a snowy landscape with igloos in the background. Children will appreciate Wellington's easy-to-read expressions and body language, determination, and willingness to believe in the impossible. Overall, the story presents a positive message about pursuing one's desires despite challenges.-Emily E. Lazio, The Smithtown Special Library District, NY (c) Copyright 2014.
