Have you ever wished to have a wild animal as a pet? That’s exactly what happens to Mr. Popper in this classic read-aloud adventure!

Mr. Popper is an arm-chair traveler who receives the surprising gift of a live penguin from his explorer hero. But how will he take care of a penguin? Before he knows it, he’s host to a whole family of penguins who have taken over his whole house! Follow Mr. Popper and his penguins’ epic capers for a funny read-aloud that will appeal to readers young and old.

With our Read-Aloud Poster for Mr. Popper’s Penguins you will:

  • color and add details to a story board
  • compare Mr. Popper’s home with the penguins’ natural habitat
  • make a timeline to show the main events of the story
  • draw character portraits using details from the text
  • explore new vocabulary

Of course, we've also included Read-Aloud Poster favorites: discussion questions, reader evaluations, and a chapter tracker! 

We think this book is best for ages 6 and up, and is particularly great when you’re beginning chapter book read-alouds with kids who dream of a wild pet! 

Print sizes: Because this poster incorporates a refrigerator door that prints as a separate file, it is important to print both the Read-Aloud Poster and the door at the sizes specified.

Refrigerator door: Print on 11x17 paper.

Activity Guide: Print on 8 1/2x11 paper.

The digital poster does not include stickers.
