    Flora and the Flamingo is a cute book that details the friendship between a little girl and a flamingo through the art of dance. In this interactive book, the two new friends practice their dance together, synchronizing their moves. The wonderful illustrations in this book help to depict the great fun that they have doing something that they both clearly enjoy.

    That flamingo was such a jerk at first, but she redeemed herself.

    Flora and the Flamingo is a wordless picture book about a giant flamingo and a little ballerina wearing fins. They dance together, and while the little girl messes up a couple of moves, the flamingo helps her and they dance together into a beautiful performance. The art is nice, and it could be used in a lesson having students write their own words to the story, to fill in the blanks.

    I'm not a huge fan of wordless books, unless the pictures are very intricate. The art in this is very good, but there isn't a whole lot to it. I think this would have been a cute short film, but as a book I thought it was kind of dull.

    In my opinion, this wordless picture book was very creative and cute for it being about a little girl and a flamingo. One of the reasons I like this book is because the illustrations are very informative. It shows the little girl trying to copy whatever the flamingo is doing. Once the flamingo notices what is going on, she huffs and the little girl and turns away. When the flamingo sees that the girl is sad, it cheers her up and lets her join in on the many poses a flamingo does. Without words, I believe this is a good book for an ELL student so that he/she can learn to decipher what the book's message is or what the book is trying to display throughout.

    A young girl named Flora, is at a lake in her swimming attire, who uses her imagination to the fullest by creating a friend and it’s a flamingo! Flora is behind the flamingo secretly mimicking it’s every move into a form of dance until the flamingo catches her. The flamingo is not amused and squawks at Flora, Flora is then startled and falls quickly into the water which is very shallow. The flamingo see’s Flora crying and decides to help the girl up. Flora then graciously smiles at the flamingo and they friendship instantly begins and they continue dancing together as friends. I enjoyed how this book was entirely wordless and how the author used minimal color to accentuate the two characters in the story so that the reader could merely focus on the characters expressions and movements. I also enjoyed how the reader has the opportunity to play a huge part by being able to participate in the imagination process.

    This wordless picture book allows the reader to be taken on an adventure with a flamingo. this book is a humorous book that entails the trials and tribulations of friendship. It shows how friendship in any shape or form will have their ups and downs. All types of friendships will have troubles that are overcome almost all of the time. It takes a certain type of friend that will stay there the entire time. I would share this book to a group of pre-k to first graders to be able to hear their different interpretations of each picture.

    A stunning and delightful wordless wonder.

    This is a wordless book in which Flora and the flamingo tumble and dance with one another. Illustrations are in shades of pink.

    I really loved simplicity of this book and all of the pink. I liked that this book can be interactive and help the reader create their own version of the story.

    Flora and her flamingo friend dance across the pages of this lovely wordless picture-book from former Disney animator Molly Idle. Gracefully in sync at the beginning, they are briefly separated when Flamingo's joke leads to a tumble for Flora. Fortunately this pink avian dancer knows how to win over his little-girl partner, and hurt feelings are soon forgotten.Awarded a Caldecott Honor in 2014, Flora and the Flamingo features delightfully expressive artwork that perfectly captures the back and forth of two dance partners and friends. The inclusion of flaps adds to the storytelling rather than just providing an interactive feature to entertain. The before and after, above and beneath the flaps, heightens the sense of motion on the page, building the reader's sense of observing a moving tableau. I like the pink color scheme, despite not generally caring for pink, and found both bird and girl endearing. I appreciated the fact that Flora has a rather rotund little body, appropriate for a young child, rather than the overly-thin ones that are more often seen. I also like the Flamingo's rather smirking smile. Recommended to fans of wordless picture-books, and to young dancer-lovers.

    This wordless book speaks volumes! This is a story about Flora who tries to dance like the flamingo. She does well at first but inevitably fails because humans are incapable of moving certain ways that a flamingo can. She gets upset and you can see the emotions on her face without having to read it. The flamingo helps her along doing things he knows she can follow. Sweet book with beautiful illustrations and the flaps that lift make it fun for children.I enjoyed being in Flora's very pink world. I would recommend a wordless book to any age, however if I had to give an age range I would say 1st-3rd grade.

    Imagine a wordless encounter between a beautiful pink flamingo and a cute little girl in a bathing suite. Flora models her dance movements on the flamingo bird. The flamingo and Flora's graceful dance a duet revealing beautiful new poses, When you flip the pages it gives you a sense of animation of a visual storytelling. Perfect for ages 3 to 7 years old.

    While I'm not a fan of trying to "read" wordless picture books in storytime, especially when I have upwards of 30-40 kids, I did enjoy the illustrations in this book.
  • (4/5)
    I thought that this was a good book to introduce to very young readers. I loved that this was a wordless picture book. The illustrations spoke for themselves in a beautiful manner. A young child could potentially create their own dialogue between Flora and the flamingo throughout the story. I also loved the interactive pieces within the book itself. The flaps on some of the pages allows the reader to make connections between the pictures. Although, this story is simple and easy to understand, it is a good story for beginning readers. I believe that the main idea of this story is that even the most unlikely of people can eventually become the best of friends.

    In my opinion this was a good book. One reason for this is it was all pictures and no words which would be good for lower level readers or children who cannot yet read. Along with this if you have a student who cannot read or speak English this would be a good book to use in the class so the child feels included and can understand the story regardless of language. Also the illustrations were beautifully drawn and kept the reader informed of the friendship between Flora and the flamingo. The big idea of this story was friendships can be formed between two unlikely people.

     Delightfully animated children's book, illustrated with suggestions of the little girl being in a dance as a flamingo. Lovely.

    Cute silent book about a girl, Flora, dancing with a flamingo.

    She attempts to emulate his moves. He doesn't like that, at first.

    The two end up becoming friends.

Flora tries and fails and then the Flamingo helps her.

The visual images told a story but this allows the child to be the author and create the details. The illustrations were beautiful and the images just jumped off the pages. This is a good book to encourage a child to imagine and create a story line. It works for children of all ages because it encourages the child to fill in the blanks.
