Soundprints and the Smithsonian Institution take you on an exciting adventure to the west coast of Peru where the Humboldt Penguin family teaches Baby Penguin how to survive. When penguin hatches, Mother and Father Penguin keep him warm and feed him mushed anchovies and other tiny fish. As Penguin grows older, they protect him from hungry sea birds. Now, Penguin must learn to swim. Will Penguin be safe on his own?
