Age Guidance:

The world is a very big place, especially for a tiny baby penguin who is just finding his feet.

The shimmering stars and glistening snow spin around our little hero, while the mountains tower high and the wind rushes to and fro. And although baby penguin may be small his family know he’s the biggest thing of all.

This early years favourite is a touching story about a parent and their love for their child by cherished children’s author Emma Dodd.

Ideal for toddlers aged 2-5 as their first theatre experience.

A Little Angel Theatre production based on the book by Emma Dodd published by The Templar Company Limited.
