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
