Book review: 'Penguin's Christmas Wish,' preschoolers learn the true meaning of Christmas

Parents need to know that "Penguin's Christmas Wish" is the sixth book in the popular "Penguin" series by author-illustrator Salina Yoon. Here, the loveable Penguin and his family go into the forest and decorate a Christmas tree, but when they wake up the next morning, they find a blizzard has dumped snow on all the trees and their decorations and presents appear to have vanished. How they make do and have a lovely Christmas anyway is a gentle story filled with the key message that Christmas isn't just about presents and decorations. And a fun, fresh twist guarantees that Penguin gets his wish to "share Christmas with the whole forest" after all.
