Completely adorable true story of two male penguins who hatch an egg together and become a family. It alternately cracks me up and makes me furious that this is consistently one of the most challenged/banned books in the U.S. Yes, it positively portrays a same-sex relationship. BETWEEN PENGUINS. If you are really concerned about that, you have bigger problems than a book.

Scochrane26 This was recommended at a training about lgbt issues with kids. There‘s also a book that is supposed to be rapped, that the trainer said is his fave. Going to have to look for the title. 2w

One of the oddest books I've read... Definitely worth it. A strange tale of Soviet deaths and mysteries. Plus a penguin.

I was thinking about emperors & emperor penguins & it turns out that there are a few different emperor penguin variations on the Hans Christian Anderson classic #TheEmperorsNewClothes out there. I picked this one. 🐧💙

Eve of the Emperoe Penguin is a SF chapter book written by Mary Pope Osborne. This is the 40th book in the Magic Tree House series. This book follows Jack and Annie as they travel to Antarctica to find the next secret to give to Marlin. I would use this book as a IR or PR in my classroom. This book is a great resource because if the students like this book it might let dive into the series.

UDL: 2.1
ESOL: 5. Teach technical vocabulary supporting key concepts
Before reading go over vocabulary and other challenging words the students will find in the text. You can also make picture word cards to help with ESOL and UDL strategies.

Macker11 I think that the Magic Tree House series is such an important series for elementary students! This book seems to intrigue so many students and I think getting them hooked on a series is important for further reading! I love your idea about picture word cards to help out! Being able to understand the vocabulary is extremely helpful to the content of the story. 1mo
DrSpalding Not truly science fiction more modern fantasy. This series while I know they are traveling in a magic treehouse… Is not focused on the time travel as much as it is other information in the story. Merlin missions… Picture word cards are very helpful! The website created by the publisher is the best possible resource for this series. 2w
