Last year, we introduced readers to FLORA AND THE FLAMINGO, the fabulous wordless (and Caldecott honor) picture book by Molly Idle. This year, just in time for the holidays and the snowy cold of winter, the ReaderKidZ are thrilled to share the newest book in the Flora series, FLORA AND THE PENGUIN.
A palette of icy pale blue and spots of yellow and orange against a white background lend the perfect setting for this tale of Flora and her new-found friend. Skating in tandem, the two leap and slide, balance and glide across the ice. When Flora rejects Penguin’s gift, the two experience a momentary tiff. But it doesn’t last long. A glorious gatefold reveals their delightful solution.
Enjoy this sneak peek of Flora in Chronicle’s 2014 Holiday video!
