Sure, Mr. Popper is an inquisitive fellow with a great passion for penguins. Sure, he’s the main character in the popular children’s book Mr. Popper’s Penguins by Richard and Florence Atwater. And yes, Jim Carey did play the character in the movie version of the book. However, just for today, I’m asking Mr. Popper to move aside because I have some penguin news to share!
Today, January 20, is Penguin Awareness Day! Ta-da! And since I didn’t give you any advance notice of this special day, I’ve rounded up some penguin-related no-prep activities that you can use right away. Here you go!
