Both boys loved this! The repetition of words is great for beginner readers and it also has a surprise ending :)

Edna the Penguin sees one of three colours every day, white, blue and black. She is bored of her tricolour world and longs to see something new, something different. So Edna sets out to explore and see the world. She discovers an Antarctic research team, and she sees orange for the first time. Edna drags the rest of her colony along with her on the journey, expanding all of their horizons.

Author/Illustrator Antoinette Portis has vreated a very simply illustrated book, but that works with the themes with which she is working. Teachers and parents will love using this book to introduce point of view to younger and older students. Just sweet.
