What’s It About?
An adorable penguin needs a change of scenery from the ice and snow.
He decides to go on vacation to the … BEACH. 🙂
A tropical adventure is just what a penguin needs.
He meets a tiny friend “crab” who shows him how to have fun in the sun.
Their relationship blossoms into a beautiful friendship.
But when penguin’s vacation comes to an end (as all vacations unfortunately do)…
Will distance allow penguin and crab to continue their new friendship?

My Top Recommended Tool to Boost Skills…
As a parent, getting our child to read and write effectively early on may seem like an overwhelming thing to do.
I’m here to tell you it is perfectly normal to feel this way and it’s OK. 🙂
Every kid blossom’s at their own pace.
It’s our duty as a parent to inspire our kids to want to learn.
Learning doesn’t have to be boring, actually the more fun and enjoyable we make it, the easier it is!
I want to share with you a tool I used to help my 6-year-old son, Cody, who struggled with reading and writing.
Cody loved math but was not a huge fan of writing or reading, ugh.
The learning curriculum below truly helped him and he enjoyed it!
He didn’t even realize he was boosting his skills because he was having fun.
