When Flo and her daddy go to visit a relative’s new nest, Daddy Duck says Flo must follow him or she’ll get lost. Together, they sing a song with all the directions for the journey — up, down, in, and out. But Flo starts to make up her own words, and soon she gets so carried away that she wanders off. Oh, no — now a fox is following Flo! Where is Daddy Duck? What are the words to his song again?
This lively read aloud is a visual treat! Jarvis’s cheerful illustrations and charming text will have young readers following and singing along with Flo. Kids will love this plucky little duck and smile at her loving father's solution to keeping her on the right path — and they'll get a quick reminder of why, sometimes, it's important to follow the directions your parents give.
"Jarvis (Who Is Happy?) strikes a forthrightly sweet mood, with a singsong text that circles back on itself for a happy ending, and mixed-media paintings in a nursery palette of soft, textured pastels (exceptions are bright yellow Flo and the equally bright orange fox). The only ironic note is the side-eye Flo gives readers when her dad is singing; even the most well-behaved readers will relate." — Publishers Weekly
