Kids, don your jammies and join us for a Bedtime Story with the author herself! Angela Burke Kunkel, author of Digging for Words, reads Penguin Journey, her lyrical picture book about emperor penguins’ incredible journey to parenthood. 



This young picture book is about the incredible lengths to which emperor penguins go for their young ones. Angela Burke Kunkel’s lyrical text and Catherine Odell’s gorgeous illustrations detail the penguins' amazing journey, and an author's note and bibliography provide added context.

After soaking up the sun in the Southwest for a number of years, Burke Kunkel now lives in Vermont with her husband, two children, two dogs, two guinea pigs, and one rapidly growing bearded dragon. She hopes to meet a penguin (or three!) up close one day. Visit her at
