Did you know a group of penguins is called a waddle? In truth, it is more commonly known as a “rookery” or a “colony”, but a “waddle of penguins” sounds much cuter, don’t you think? A group of penguins in the water is known as a “raft of penguins.” And so I come to the point: print out this waddle of penguins coloring page for your learning unit on penguins! Or, you know, just for a quick boredom buster.
In any case, children’s book illustrator and author, Melanie Hope Greenberg, has created a sweet penguins coloring page for our monthly coloring page feature.
