Mr. Popper's Penguins

Saturday, December 29 is the birthday of Richard Atwater.  Mr. Atwater is no longer with us but the book he co-wrote with his wife Florence continues to be a favorite of children to this day -- some seventy-four years after its original publication.

Inspired by Richard Byrd's first Antarctic expedition, the Atwaters wrote Mr. Popper's Penguins and received a Newbery Honor citation in 1939.

Using your library card and the collections at the San Antonio Public Library, you can read the book, listen to the book or watch the movie that was adapted from the Atwater's delightful story!
