We just discovered this delightful book by Oliver Jeffers.

Lost and Found tells the story of a lost penguin. Or, so the boy whose home he arrives at, thinks.

My three year old son adores the tale of how the boy slowly discovers that the penguin isn’t lost, but lonely.

What he needs is a friend.

The illustrations are as precious as the story. It turns out that Oliver Jeffers has a number of other kids’ books, all of which are award-winners (and all of which will be coming to live at our home sometime soon!).

If you already know Lost and Found, it might be time to check out: How to Catch a Star, The Way Back Home, or The Incredible Book Eating Boy. Get yourself a book or two, then snuggle up with your favorite toddler and get reading!
