Playful little puffin Árni is about to leave his burrow for a four-year adventure at sea. But Árni doesn’t want to go—at least not today. He wants one more day to play with his best friend Birta, but she is nowhere to be found. While Árni searches Iceland for Birta, his mother and father are searching for him. Little pufflings shouldn’t be wandering about all alone!
Puffins Take Flight is the entertaining and educational first installment in RA Anderson’s Iceland: The Puffin Explorers Series. Aimed at children ages pre-K through 2nd grade, Puffins Take Flight introduces readers to puffins and their breathtaking surroundings in Iceland. Fun facts are sprinkled throughout the book and include interesting tidbits about Iceland, puffins and a mention of Icelandic sheep.
Will Árni find Birta and will Árni’s parents find him before it’s too late? Come along on Árni’s big adventure to find out! Illustrated with actual photographs taken during the author’s exploration of Iceland, this eye-catching picture book is sure to entertain readers of all ages.
Watch for future adventures with Árni and Birta in the upcoming Puffins off the Beaten Path and Puffins Encounter Fire & Ice.

This truly is a delightful book. And I have to say, puffins are pretty darn adorable. Okay...extremely adorable.
The stunning photography, the engaging story and the interesting tidbits about Iceland and puffins, makes this a "keeper book" for a child's (and school's!) library. ~ The Pet Blog Lady ~
