This is a very cute story that teaches children the importance of accepting others for who they are. Tacky is a penguin who is not like other penguins, and this is what makes him stand out. This book teaches children that we all have our own unique qualities and physical attributes, and this is what makes us special. There are more books in this series as well! (submitted by KB)

Tacky marches to the beat of his own drum. All the other sophisticated and graceful penguins want nothing to do with him! Then hunters come and Tacky saves the day! Being different can sometimes be just the right thing.
