Anchor Book for the Week:

This is the story of the Emperor penguin, the only large animal to remain on the Antarctic mainland throughout its bitterly inhospitable winter. Once the female has laid her egg, she heads back out to sea. Leaving the male penguin all alone to incubate the egg. He courageously spends two long months standing on the freezing cold ice with the egg on his feet!
