Emperor penguins are one of the very few species able to survive in the frigid Antarctic and the only species that stays there year round. Children will be fascinated by the journey taken by these birds to their annual breeding grounds and by the difficulties presented by having their young in the harshest conditions on the planet. The Life Cycle of an Emperor Penguin uses straightforward text and beautiful pictures to explain in detail • the roles of the fathers in hatching the eggs and caring for the newborns • the predators of emperor penguins • the survival skills emperor penguins need to live in the Antarctic
