    Jasmine from How Useful It Is

    Read for my toddler’s bedtime. A baby penguin just hatched and he has colorful hair. He tried every which way to get rid of it because he didn’t like being different but he couldn’t and he felt miserable. This story reminded me of The Red Nose Reindeer, The Oddbird, The Purple Frog, and The Ugly Duckling. Good rhyming story. Cute illustrations. Read from kindle unlimited.

    This adorable story has beautiful illustrations that draws children in. Spike is having a hard time accepting how he looks because he doesn't look like the others. His parents tell him that his feathers are beautiful but he wants to be like the others. This is an excellent story to draw discussions about being ok to be yourself and having children to voice their opinions. This adorable story has beautiful illustrations that draws children in.

    This book is spectacular, from the gorgeous cover, to the perfect rhyme and to the beautiful illustrations. Spike, an adorable little penguin, doesn’t love his rainbow hair and tries to hide it in numerous ways because he doesn’t want to look different from other penguins. The message of loving yourself just as you are is such an important one for kids. Children everywhere will want to take Spike home. He is the cutest penguin ever! A bonus is the penguin fact sheet. This wonderful book is a keeper.

    We should never be scared to stand out. This is a lovely book which gives a clear message that it's ok to be different. The illustrations are beautiful, the rhyming is excellent and I'd highly recommend it for all kids. It may even have convinced me to get a multicoloured mohawk too!

An awesome book cover, great hand-drawn colored pictures, charming illustrations & proper font & writing style. A very professionally written children’s (preschool/elementary age) Penguin storybook. It was quite easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters, settings, etc. to keep track of. This could also make another great children’s educational presentation (be happy with how you were born), Penguin movie, an animated cartoon, or better yet a mini-TV series. There is no doubt in my mind this is an extremely easy rating of 5 stars. Thank you for the free author; FreeBooksy; Amazon Digital Services LLC. Kindle Mobi; book Tony Parsons MSW (Washburn)

Loving yourself for who they are and our friends that don’t look the same is why we share a world of beauty. This story nails this in minutes. The illustrations are absolutely gorgeous too. My kids slowly scanned each page with admiration. Spike is awesome. Highly recommend.

    Beautifully illustrated, rhyming story about a young penguin who is just a little different. It takes a while for him to accept himself and that's the subtle message of this wonderful book. Kids will enjoy the amazing colors, Antarctic scenery and the familiar animals. I'm sure plenty of them will relate to Spike. We all have our special features, let's show them off and not hide them. Great story about being yourself and not worrying about fitting in. Be special, stand out, no need to blend in.

    Sweet book about loving oneself This is a sweet book that teaches children (and adults) to love themselves the way they are. This is a story about a little penguin that was born with colorful hair. His hair was shaped like a Mohawk so his family named him Spike. Spike did not like his colorful hair and tried to find ways to hide it or get rid of it. But nothing he did worked. When he goes to his friends for help, they say something to him that makes him see himself in a positive way.

    Poor Spike, he is born with such beautiful rainbow hair but he doesn't like it. He just doesn't want to be different than his friends and feels that he doesn't fit it. The book follows Spike's attempts to get rid of the colourful tuft. What a beautiful story of building confidence in own looks and the uniqueness of each person. Truly enjoyable. Zuzana Svobodova's illustrations are the perfect match for this book. Absolutely stunning. Poor Spike, he is born with such beautiful rainbow hair but he doesn't like it.

    Be proud of yourself When Spike is born different than his other penguin friends, he tries to get rid of his differences by dying his hair and even cutting it off. But he soon learns that his hair is a piece of him that makes him special and his friends love that about him. It’s the perfect book to celebrate our differences and what makes us unique. Another wonderful book by Sarah and Carmen!

    A cute and well versed rhyming book My children thoroughly enjoyed this book! The rhyming flowed very well and was easy for younger readers to understand. It was a heartwarming story about a penguin that wanted to be the same as everyone else, but soon realizes it’s OK to be different! Highly recommended!

    Great illustrations and sweet story This is a very sweet story about self-acceptance and loving what makes us all unique. After trying to blend in with the crowd, Spike learned to find pride in his rainbow hair. The book ends with a quiz, which my 5-year-old really enjoyed. My children loved this story and the illustrations, so I am giving the book 5 stars.

    Spike is the cutest penguin! The illustrations are colorful and creative, imagining all the different ways Spike might want his hair. This story could be used to open conversations about conformity, individuality, peer pressure, growth, social acceptance, personal authenticity, and breaking free of expectations.

    Spike is born with rainbow hair and wants to fit in. He gets highly creative - but in the end he learns an important lesson about self-love and confidence. The rhyme flows well, and the illustrations are beautiful.

    Spike is an adorable penguin who just wants to fit in. Sarah Cullen and Carmen Ellis’ rhyming text is fun to read and children will root Spike on as he comes to embrace his unique hair. Zuzana Svobodova’s illustrations are vibrant and bring the story to life.
