I had the good fortune to go to a Storytime Workshop by Susan M. Dailey once. I came away with lots of great ideas, one of which was her story, Pippa’s Penguins. The story and template can be found at her very useful website.
I find the story goes a little too long for kids if I use all of these so I mix them up and leave out a few each time. Also, the polka-dotted penguin is reversible to a normal black and white penguin so I can use it for more traditional penguin stories as well.
