Hand by hand they are going to Alaska! They are going to dance the Charleston like Maria’s mother.
There are two penguins, but the place they are in is no good. They are in Australia and there is no snow. That’s not good for penguins.
We think that one penguin is a boy and the other is a girl. Elsie notes that one penguin is slightly smaller than the other. The smaller one is the female.
When Isabel is asked if she thinks the penguins are husband and wife, she replies with a smile: “I haven’t posted that letter yet and I haven’t got a return!”
But Tony thinks they are husband and wife because they are holding hands. The male penguin is called “Icicles” and the female penguin is called “Paulina”.
They are going to Alaska. George has been to Alaska. He was there in the summer and there wasn’t any snow, so we think the penguins are going in the winter. George liked Alaska and he thinks the penguins will too!
Peggy points out that the penguins are looking at the water.
“I don’t think the penguins are husband and wife,” says Pam. “I think they are a mother and daughter holding hands and spending time together. They are Turkish penguins!”
One of the penguins is showing off because it’s looking pretty, and Maria is jealous!
According to Bill, the parents of any animal would want to look after the child. He says the penguins have a smile on their face.
Hand by hand they are dancing the Charleston. “I am sure somebody would be happy,” says Roberta.
They are definitely going to make it to Alaska. When they get there, they will have a big breakfast of little fish!
