Review

This wordless book features Flora (implied in the title) who finds a dancing flamingo. She begins to copy the flamingo and they quickly become friends. Eventually, they manage to dance in complete harmony. Most pages include large pull-down tabs with another image underneath. They help tell the story by showing what action has taken place. These pull-down tabs may be unsuitable for younger children as they can tear easily. Also, the challenge of understanding the narrative exclusively from images makes this story ideal for an audience of at least first graders. Well suited for teaching children how to read visuals. Recommended. Austin Becton, Centennial Library Intern, Cedarville University
