With the upcoming release of Mr. Popper’s Penguins, on December 6, I wanted to share with you two great activity sheets. (You will find the activity sheets at the end of this post.)
We love family movies here in our home, and Mr. Popper’s Penguins is going to be one to watch during the holiday season.
***Watch soon for a DVD giveaway here at Long Wait For Isabella for Mr. Popper’s Penguin!***
MR. POPPER’S PENGUINS is based on a novel, originally published in 1938, written by the husband and wife team of Richard and Florence Atwater. Awarded the Newbery Medal in 1939, Mr. Popper’s Penguins became a classic through generations, and is a staple on elementary school shelves to this day.
The whole family will be full of laughs watching Mr. Popper, a driven businessman who is clueless when it comes to the important things in life until he inherits six, “adorable” and mischievous penguins. As Mr. Popper quickly gets acquainted with – and increasingly attached to – his winged roommates, his life quickly unravels: the deal he’s long been working on with a formidable socialiate, Mrs. Van Gundy, played by the acclaimed Angela Lansbury (Murder She Wrote, Beauty and the Beast), is derailed and Popper almost lands in jail. While Popper’s penguins turn his swank New York apartment into a snowy winter wonderland – they teach him valuable lessons about family-human and otherwise!
