d l o c e h t h c o i t t n n i g a H My mother has laid an egg. She keeps it warm on her feet.

I am growing inside the egg. I am a king penguin.

I am ready to break out of my egg.

I chip away the tough shell. It takes a long time!

At last, I am free!

Keeping warm I am one day old. It is cold outside, even though the sun is shining.

My fluffy feathers have not grown in yet. Brrr!

Can I sit on your feet, Dad? They are very warm.

r e h t d l i e d n g tog Hu I am two months old. My downy feathers have grown.

I huddle close to the other chicks to keep warm and safe.

Gone fishing … I am eight months old. My parents are fishing.

I wish they would come back. I am hungry.

Look! Here they are. They have fish in their tummies to share with me.

t a Brand-new co I am one year old now. I am losing my fluffy feathers.

My coat is changing.

My friends are losing their feathers, too.

Here is my new adult coat. Soon I will be able to swim in the sea.

Ready to swim

I am thirteen months old. My smooth waterproof feathers keep me warm and dry.

My yellow feathers are turning bright orange.

I have a pink streak on my beak. Finally, I am old enough to swim in the sea.

New chicks Now I am two-and-a-half years old.

I have a chick of my own to care for.

I go hunting for fish. My little chick waits with the others, safe on dry land.
