Mr. Popper is a house painter and a dreamer who loves the Antarctic and wishes he had traveled before settling down. Though his work barely brings in enough money to buy food for his family, they are happy. But Mr. Popper is a dreamer of big dreams, and when an explorer responds to a letter from Mr. Popper by sending a penguin from the South Pole, one penguin turns out to be not enough! How will the family manage 12 penguins when they can hardly feed themselves? A story full of laughs and determination.

My son really enjoyed this study guide. I loved the way it made him think about things that he normally wouldn't have thought about. I also enjoyed the suggested activities. We will definitely continue to use Progeny Press study guides.
Just like every other Progeny product I've used, Mr. Popper's Penguins not only teaches literary devices, skills, reading, writing, etc....it integrates scripture in a way that shows integrity to the work of literature but more importantly to the Word of God. I love their work and would love to work for them someday! :)
