Mr. Popper's Penguins

This week, Ben and I have been listening to the audio cd of Mr. Popper's Penguins. What a delightful little story of this man's adventures with Captain Cook and Greta. For me, the greatest delight has been in his "narration" as the story goes along. With each chapter, Ben joyfully shares the events that have unfolded and makes predictions of what may occur. As we reached the middle of the story, Mr. Popper's penguin, Captain Cook, became sick. We learn that Mr. Popper adds another arctic member to his family and her name is Greta.

This excited Ben and in his best announcer man voice, he predicted the next chapter..."Chapter 11 Greta Lays Her Eggs" He was convinced that he knew the ending of the story. Once our little adventure was over he sat with me and discussed how he would have written the story.
