Penguins
By Vickie Chao
Rewritten as a short reader by Cindy Grigg
  

1     These cute seabirds have wings, but they can't fly. Their backs are black or blue-gray. They have a white belly. They have two short legs. They have two wings that they use as flippers. What are they? These cute seabirds are penguins!
 
2     Penguins look clumsy on land. Yet in the water, they are graceful swimmers! In fact, early explorers thought they were fish. Most penguins live in places covered by snow and ice year-round. All penguins live in the Southern Hemisphere. Some penguins live in Antarctica. Some are found in warmer areas in Africa and South America.
