Mr. Penguin, Watch that Egg!
By Colleen Messina
  

1     Caption: Emperor penguin feeding a chick
 
2     Parents are proud of their babies. They take care of them. Birds take care of their babies, too. This starts right away. They first take care of their eggs. Then, they take care of their chicks.
 
3     Some birds lay eggs in a nest. The mother sits on the eggs. Then, the eggs hatch. Penguins have a different system. Not all penguins have nests. The parents watch the eggs. Dads sometimes take a turn. The mothers say, "Mr. Penguin, watch that egg!" The mother takes a break. Do you think the mother penguins like having help?
