    1. This is a mildly funny and sweet story about an unconventional penguin and his conformist peers.For me, the names of all the penguins were the most amusing part of the book.This book has some good messages: that being odd or different and being your own person can be a huge positive, and that it’s worth it to make friends with those who might, on the surface, seem weird in any way. It could make a great read aloud book for groups of children to discourage them from ostracizing anybody. Along w [...]

    2. This is a great book to show that being different is a good thing. Tacky is an odd bird among his companion penguins, Goodly, Lovely, Angel, Neatly, and Perfect. They did everything right. They marched at a perfect beat while Tacky did his own thing. They sang with beautiful voices while Tacky sang his own off-key song. They were always thinking how different he was and why he wasn't like them. Well when hunters came looking to find the perfect penguins, Tacky came to the rescue. Because he was [...]

    3. Tacky is an odd bird. Yeah, I just don't dig it. Perhaps that's why none of the kindergarteners this year and last seemed to dig it either. Can you sense ambivalence? I tried it last year when I was trying to build my kindergarten readaloud list (so many places recommend it) and it bombed a bit. Same thing happened this year. Yes, I put energy into my reading. Tacky's an interesting characters, one with lots of promise. However, I didn't find the book funny. The plots a little odd. I don't parti [...]

    4. I don't normally read children's picture books but this one was just so cute and funny! My coach gave all of the girls on my basketball team a copy of this book. She read it to us during practice one day and we even named our mascot after Tacky. My coach wanted us to know that being different is a good thing, especially when it saves your companions from being captured by hunters :)

    5. My son loves this book. He's a reluctant reader, but he reads this one multiple times a day. He even read it to his father while his father was doing the dishes so that his father could "imagine the pictures."

    6. Tacky the Penguin follows the life of a penguin that is different. Tacky does everything the other penguins do but just a little bit differently. Tacky is never accepted by the other penguin’s because they think that it’s there way or the highway. One day when trouble comes Tacky’s differences are what saves the Penguins. The other penguins are astonished and finally accept Tacky as one of their fellow Penguins. This book would be perfect to teach students the idea of acceptance. It is ver [...]

    7. This book was about a penguin who marches to his own drummer. A good book to use to teach kids it's ok to be different, very funny, kids loved it.

    8. If you read it in a crazy voice children will fall in love with this book. Last year's class would sing "How many toes does a fish have?" at recess. Go figure.

    9. Tacky is most definitely one of my favorite characters from children's literature. I suppose I should start by saying that if it were possible to have a fictional spirit animal, Tacky would probably be mine. He is a bit odd. He does not quite fit in with the other pretty penguins. He marches to the beat of his own drum (1-2-3, 4-2, 3-6-0, 2 1/2, 0). Nonetheless, Tacky always turns out to be a good bird to have around.For my full review (with cat picture!), visit my blog:booksonmycat.wordpress/20 [...]

    10. Tacky the Penguin by Helen Lester tells the story of Tacky, a very different penguin than his friends. His friends are named Goodly, Lovely, Angel, Neatly, and Perfect. It's obvious right away just by his name that Tacky doesn't fit in. As you read about Tacky, he does everything different than the other penguins. They dive gracefully, but Tacky cannon balls in. They march in step, and Tacky is all over the place. One day though, hunters come to where the penguins live looking to trap them for m [...]

    11. Tacky the Penguin by Helen Lester, illustrated by Lynn Munsinger, is the first of a series of books about Tacky (a nonconformist) and his graceful, well-behaved companions: Goodly, Lovely, Angel, Neatly, and Perfect. TAcky's behavior, loud Hawaiian shirts, loud singing, & splashy cannonball dives initially puts off his companions. But when the hunters arrive, it's Tacky's antics that save the day.This is ome of my favorite funny read-alouds. Kids enjoy the loud, slightly obnoxious behavior o [...]

    12. Oh, cute! I like this one by the author of "Hooway for Wodney!" Really cute story. And I like the pictures, too. And a nice little moral tucked inside.6/22/10 & 6/24/10 Fabulous choice for storytime! They loved it. And I had such fun reading the narration, doing voices, and "singing" the songs. I think the children were highly entertained by my reading. (I entertained myself!) And I believe they enjoyed the story, too.4/18/12 Wonderful wind-up to my Adventures! theme. Of course, it would hav [...]

    14. Tacky the Penguin is a great book to read aloud but is even better to listen to on CD. This is great for ages 4-8 and the illustrations capture the mood of each penguin in a whimsical and colorful way. Helen Lester does a great job bringing Tacky, a loud odd penguin to life. Tacky lives with a group of five formal and proper penguins but Tacky is nothing like them. His antics confuse his friends until one day they hear a thump…thump…thump. In this book you will find out how a loud, odd pengu [...]

    15. I thought this was a nice book. I liked that Tacky danced to the beat of his own drum. I find that people have a hard time in doing this. I liked how his personality came through in his actions. I also liked that in the end it was Tacky that saved the day and the others were grateful for what he did. It shows that everyone has a special quality and it just takes the right time for it to come to light for others to see it. I really just like penguins in general so pretty much any story about them [...]

    16. The message "it's okay to be different" is a popular one in the world of picture books. Unfortunately, it's usually paired with vivid examples of people harassing the different person - comes a point in Rudolph, for example, where I wonder why the red-nosed reindeer agreed to help any of them!Tacky manages to avoid that. Tacky is different from the other penguins, and doesn't fit in, but they don't go out of their way to make him feel bad for that. And then, of course, his differences go on to s [...]

    17. Features: repetition, interesting pictures with facial expression. There's singing, so it makes it fun to do the voices. Fun read! Moral: it's good to be different or to be tolerant of others' differences.

    18. This book was a great read especially when dealing with diversity of any kind. Everyone is their own individual and should not be placed in the same category even if of the same religion, ethnicity,etc. Tacky was deffinetly an odd penguin but in the end he saved the day and was so loveable.

    19. Tacky was an odd bird. It is a simple truth. My family has gotten a lot out of this book, and I believe it is the best out of all of the Tacky books. The best part is sometimes if I just do something random, my parents will look at me for a moment and say, "Tacky was an odd bird." Very good book.

    20. Our son loved this book. Great for 5 and 6 year olds. Tacky seemed an odd bird to the other penguins but sometimes having a renegade in the crowd has benefits for the whole group. Cute and funny.

    21. This is a book that can be read during circle time. The meaning of this book can teach children that it's okay to be different and just be who you are. The illustration was very detailed.

    22. Tacky the penguin is a fantastic story about a penguin (duh) who stands out from the rest of them. It reminds me a tad of "The Ugly Duckling" except Tacky comes to the rescue at the end of the story because all his "tacky" qualities save the penguins from getting eaten at the end by bears! All the other average penguins love him after all for his tacky qualities.My favorite thing about this book are the illustrations. The illustrator did a fantastic job giving Tacky his "tacky" personality and c [...]

    24. Part of my vacation project to hunt down children's books that I once enjoyed, but couldn't remember. Helen Lester spoke at my elementary school and was quite friendly, as I recall, but I didn't enjoy this book as much as I did when I was little. Tacky is not the most compelling protagonist, perhaps because he remains the same throughout the story. He saves his fellow penguins from hunters, but he has no goals and doesn't wish for other penguins to accept him. He just is. Which is an admirably Z [...]

    25. This is a fun book to read and the boy laughs out loud when we read this book. He has chosen to borrow this book a number of times from the library. It isn't a rhyming book, but has a good cadence to it. The art is quality without being too busy. The message I hear from this book is that it is okay to be different. The combined dad and bit rating results in a 4 star. The boy like it more than dad, but I would say this is a good book for preschooler / kindergartner library.
