On Top of Father's Feet

by: Yoko Imoto

"No matter how cold or how hungry I get…I will never give up. I will lay down my life to protect my child."

In the Antarctic winters, where it goes to -50C, emperor penguin parents guard and raise their only cherished egg.

The father does not eat anything for four months just so it can stay still to keep the egg warm.

Yoko Imoto touchingly tells an emperor penguin family's story using their actual behavior as parents to deliver a moving picture book that communicates life's preciousness and importance.
