Flora and the Flamingo

When a lone flamingo meets a little girl named Flora, their wordless dance becomes a metaphor for the give and take of friendship. Flora and her graceful flamingo friend twist, turn, and even flop, but these unlikely friends learn at last how to dance together in perfect harmony. Full of humor and heart, this Caldecott Honor book, with its stunning performance (and splashy ending!) will have readers clapping for more!

"A lone flamingo lands onto the nearly blank expanse of the title page. Soon, it is joined by little Flora, who provides a sweetly round counterpoint to the angular bird. She furtively imitates the flamingo's moves with utmost concentration and extremely comical poses until it catches on and squawks angrily, driving her away in a sulk. Friendship triumphs in the end, and the unlikely couple dance together and joyously cannonball into water on the last double foldout page." -- Yelena Alekseyeva-Popova, School Library Journal
