"Penguin and Pinecone (Penguin)" Reviews
Cutest book! And the illustrations are absolutely adorable!
This story illustrates the bittersweet task of supporting the people we love, even if it means losing them.
Penguin is having lots of fun with his new friend Pinecone, but when he realizes that Pinecone can't grow up big and strong planted in the ice, he carries him on his sled, all the way home to the forest. But just as the ice is no place for a pinecone, a forest is no place for a penguin, so Penguin has to leave Pinecone behind.
This also applies to more intimate relationships: We all thrive in different circumstances, and sometimes two people, even if they have a lot of fun together, don't necessarily have compatible lifestyles or goals. we all need different things to help us grow. In that sense, sometimes loving someone means losing them, or at least sacrificing some closeness to them.
When some time has passed, Penguin decides to go visit Pinecone, and finds that his friend has grown into a mighty pine tree. They play for a while, but once again, the two have to go their separate ways.
And that's just it. Even though it hurts to be separated, it's the only way to keep a true connection alive. It would be a sham friendship if Pinecone stayed in the cold, and never grew, just so they could be together. Just as it would have been unhealthy for Penguin to try and be something he's not, by staying in the warm forest. Sometimes, you just reach a crossroads with a friend, and it's not that you're no longer friends, you just have different needs.
But they realize that even though they are far apart, they still carry each other in their hearts
1. Opening: I would begin reading: One day penguin found a curious object. What do you think it is? What do you think he will do with it? Can you be friends with objects/things? What do you think he will do with his new friend? Listen as I read Penguin and Pinecone by Salina Yoon. When I am done reading be ready to answer if the story turned out how you expected.
2. Opening moves: read some of the text to engage attention. Foreshadow the problem of the story, and alert students to unusual literary structures such as flashbacks, flash-forwards, or story within a story.
3. I selected this book because it is one of my favorite childrens books at the moment. I think this a great book to use when discussing friendships and fears about unlikely friendships. I also think this book would be great to use in writing stories about a unlikely friendship combinations with animals or objects. This book could also be used when teaching and discussing how to use different types of punctuation and the use of quotation marks.

When Penguin finds Pinecone, he learns that he needs to take his friend to the forest for him to thrive. After he drops his friend off, he is sad and fondly thinks of his friend. He decides to visit Pinecone to see if he has grown big and strong as well. Pinecone has grown into a glorious pine, complete with the scarf that Penguin had knit for him.
A charming, thoughtful story. Perfect for kids aged 4 - 6 who miss someone who has moved away. "Penguin and Pinecone may have been far apart, but they always stayed in each other's hearts." A perfect reminder about the people we miss.
A delightfully simple, heartwarming story with a beautiful message.
Why did this get to me? Adorable.
