A little girl penguin is different than her brothers. When she falls through the ice, she finds a golden box. She gets it to the surface and tries to open it amidst all the other animals warnings. The other animals finally decide to help her and a wonderful surprise is found inside the box.
I'm back with another book by Julia Dweck! Pandora is different from all of the other penguins. One day she falls through the ice and finds a box. She wants to find out what is inside but all of the others think that it is a bad idea to open it. After see how important it is for Pandora, the other penguins decide to believe in her and help her get the box open. When the mystery box pops open, they are all pleasantly surprised with its contents.
My daughter loved this story, especially the surprise that was hidden in the box. I loved the rhyming flow of the words and the illustrations are cute. We should all believe in and help out the ones that we love. I'm also glad that Pandora was different from the others and had a mind of her own. I really push my kids to be themselves rather than trying to be like everyone else. The people who truly love and care about you will love you for who you really are and it's OK to be different. The best you that you can possibly be is yourself.
