The illustrations are nice but the text is so-so. It has promise but doesn't quite get there. For example, in one sentence the author writes that the mother "get's sick" in the baby's mouth and says it's "yuk". That's a poor way to describe regurgitation as a feeding method. Makes it seem, well, yuk instead of natural. I also agree a bit with some of the other comments about the text being a bit "sexist" about the suffering dad and lollygagging mom. They both have jobs to do with their inherent difficulties. Mom has to dodge predators in her search for food so she can bring it back to the chick. Still a nice book with some interesting facts.

Narrative on the process of a penguin egg with kid friendly words and illustrations. Easy comprehension illustrations and words that tell the facts. The Author's use of sick vs. regurgitated made for instant comprehension. I still introduced the latter to my students. Strongly recommended by this teacher!

Great book for kids of all ages, realistic fiction. I own it as a teacher, have bought it as a gift for grandparents, nieces and nephews, and friends. It's an incredible story!

Candlewick's press "Read and Wonder" series occupies a special place in our household: these books combine science with wonder, great, elaborate language with beautiful art, and cuddle time with many fun learning conversations.

We own about a half dozen of these books. The Emperor's Egg was the first one we bought, and like all the others, it's a treasure. The language is accessible to both my 2- and 4-year-olds. The stories draw them in, and are great starting points for conversations.

In one reading of this book, we discussed geography (the continent of Antartica, its climate and comparison to the our climates), biology (birds, and how penguins are abnormalities because the fathers sit on the eggs, and how penguins, kiwis and ostriches are all flightless, in contrast to other birds who fly), and mathematics (2 months, or 60 days without food: let's count: 1, 2, 3 ... 60!)

I highly recommend this entire series: it's rare to find a book that preschoolers request over and over, that parents love to read, and that teaches so much, in so little space, all while being just plain out beautiful to read and look at.

It’s mom! She starts trumpeting “hello” and the father penguin starts trumpeting “hello” and the chick whistles. The racket goes on for hours, and it really does sound as if they’re extremely pleased to see each other.
~ The Emporer’s Egg

There’s something special about waddling penguins, newborn babies, and doting dads. Martin Jenkins, author of Chameleons Are Cool and Grandma Elephant’s in Charge, combines them to add another irresistible animal-centered picture book to the Read and Wonder series. Through Jenkins’ enthusiastic and conversational writing style young and old readers will fall in love with the biggest penguins in the world. Their unconventional, gentle, and efficient tag team-style cooperation toward making a family offer subliminal inspiration to us humans as we strive for a higher level of selflessness and commitment. Jane Chapman’s lifelike illustrations and Jenkins’ clever footnotes pull the story together for an authentic nonfiction experience. If you enjoyed National Geographic’s March of the Penguins, you’ll enjoy The Emporer’s Egg.

Very fun story. I gave it to a granddaughter who is really into penguins. She loved the book and the baby penguin I also gave her. She would put it on her feet "just like the penguins. HAHA.
