Flora and the FlamingoBook - 2013
From Library Staff
So many things are expressed in this story without words. Flora finds a flamingo and through dance they learn to read each other. Molly Idle finds a way for the characters and the reader to relate to each other through body movement. No words need to be spoken.

SummaryAdd a Summary
A single flamingo lands and perches on one leg beneath the falling pink blossoms. It does not notice the single flippered foot that appears behind it nor, at first, the bathing suited little girl that mimics his stance. But when he starts to stretch (or is he dancing?) he can’t help but see how she tries to imitate him, wing for wing. In a moment of cussidness he bleats at her, causing her to tumble head over heel into the water. Chastened, the flamingo offers a wing and the two embark on a fantastic dance, culminating in a joyous leap into the water and an elegant bow and curtsey.
