Home Events



Wendell and Florence Minor, the authors and illustrators of If You Were a Penguin, will be visiting libraries, museums and other early learning sites across the state. Sixty-five trunks developed by museum educators also will be available for borrowing through public libraries. Each trunk is filled with fun penguin-related puppets, games and manipulatives for young children. In addition each trunk includes a guide that encourages use of the trunk contents in activities that are aligned with the Pennsylvania Early Learning Standards.

The following is a listing of the Minors’ visits around the state. This list is subject to change. Two contacts are listed for most locations: a media contact that should be contacted only by a member of the media wishing to cover an event; and a public number that the public can call for information.

Please Note: Not all events are open to the public and that some require an admission fee.

Penguin Fact

Royal penguins and Macaroni penguins look very similar. The difference is the color of the chin and face. Royals have predominately white chins and faces while those of Macaronis are mostly black.
