I have mentioned that this book is a tribute to a great person, a Canadian physicist, Ken, who along with his wife, Louise, opened their home to my family. He loves penguins and gets over the years a great collection of them, in different sizes and materials.
Ken and Louise gave me "Kenny" the penguin in this picture, almost twenty years ago when I just have started my daycare in Canada.
In "Kenny and his Great Invention," readers will learn about the importance of friendship, doing the right thing, social values, and showing forgiveness to others as they join the inquisitive penguin on his journey to become an astronaut.
Kenny is a curious penguin who loves to build and create many different objects; one day, he woke up with a brilliant idea for a science competition. He wanted to make a Spaceship. Not only does Kenny wish to win the contest, but most importantly, he wants to be the first penguin to go to space!
Kenny, with the help of his best friend Louise, works hard to build the vessel. However, when the time comes for him to present his project, it fails, and the crowd is disappointed when the engine falls apart in front of them. Will Kenny and Louise find out what went wrong? Will he repair the spaceship and fulfill his dream?
