Read full description of the books:
I love this book because it is so simple and yet so bright and positive.
I Like It When... portrays a young penguin and an adult penguin and explores their loving relationship.
The book makes no mention of age, gender or race. It does not even label the relationship between the two penguins, instead it focusses on the things the like to do together.
That the book omits such fine details makes it extremely inclusive. The young penguin could be a boy or a girl. The adult penguin could be a parent, grandparent, or foster carer. A child reading this book could come from any kind of background and find a way to make the characters relate to them.
Adding to the simplicity of this book, all of the illustrations are in black, white and primary colours, meaning that they could be easily emulated by young children.
The repetitive nature of the text makes it appropriate for early readers and could be used as a template for some writing. Children could think of something that they like to do with their parent or carer and write and sentence beginning, "I like it when..."
I think that such positive and inclusive books should be available in every primary classroom but that this one in particular would be perfect in a nursery or reception class.
