Compassionate toddler fills up with tears while watching baby penguin cartoon (video)

When compassion was being handed out, this little girl was at the front of the queue.

Just watch her heartwarming, tearful reaction to a cartoon penguin that's lost its mummy. Pure empathy!

The toddler, called Raegan, was filmed by her dad as she watched The Chipettes in Alvin and the Chipmunks cuddle a beyond-cute baby penguin and sing 'My Mother'.

Little Raegan is so moved and overwhelmed with emotion for the penguin that her little face crumples before she dissolves into tears.

And who can blame her when you hear the lyrics (which we've reproduced, below). They're all about our loving mums and how we often take them for granted. Gulp!

Story continues after the video...

Dad Travis captioned the clip – which has been viewed more than three million times on You Tube: "When I noticed my young daughter getting emotionally absorbed in the cartoon she was watching, I set up a camera to record her. And the results are just adorable.

"Thanks to everyone for watching and sharing this video of my sweet Raegan. I'm so happy I could share my daughter's compassion with the world :)"

It's hard to remember

A summer or winter

When she hasn't been there for me

A friend and companion

I can always depend on

My mother

That's who I mean

I've taken for granted

seeds that she planted

She's always behind every thing

A teacher a seeker

A both arms outreacher

My mother

That's who I mean

Wish I could slow down

The hands of time

keep things the way they are

If she said so

I would give her the world

If I could... I would

My love and my laughter

From here ever after

Is all that she says that she needs

A friend and companion

I can always depend on

My mother

That's who I mean

My mother

That's who I mean' that's who I mean
