I received Ripley’s Picture Books for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
Check out the 2 brand new picture books from Ripley’s Picture Books featuring fun and engaging stories around Ripley’s Aquarium mascots, this time Gabby the sea turtle and Norman the penguin. Filled with expressive illustrations, silly situations, and lovable characters, kids and parents alike will be enchanted by each of these charming “tails”!
Gabby’s not afraid of the dark! Well, maybe just a little. Join Gabby as she explores the deep, dark ocean. Told from Gabby’s point of view, kids will relate to how scary the dark can feel but, like Gabby, will be assured that they, too, can conquer their fear and maybe even make a new friend in the process!
Who says penguins can’t fly? Join the adorable Norman as he searches for a way to accomplish the impossible. Told from Norman’s point of view, young readers will giggle at Norman’s silly attempts and relate to his disappointment at his failures. Will Norman ultimately find a way to fly? There’s only one way to find out!
Gabby and the Dark as well as Norman and the Flight are cute books that celebrate bravery as well as sharing the message to never stop believing in yourself. They both have animal illustrations along with large words that are best for younger readers in grades K-2nd.
