Book Trailer & Demo Video: Flora and the Flamingo

By Cynthia Leitich Smith
for Cynsations

Check out the book trailer and demo video for Flora the Flamingo by Molly Idle (Chronicle, 2012). From the promotional copy:
In this innovative wordless picture book with interactive flaps, Flora and her graceful flamingo friend explore the trials and joys of friendship through an elaborate synchronized dance.
With a twist, a turn, and even a flop, these unlikely friends learn at last how to dance together in perfect harmony.
Full of humor and heart, this stunning performance (and splashy ending!) will have readers clapping for more!

That is adorable. I love using wordless books with my students so they can tell the story with their own words. It is a great activity for my speech students.

Love it! The long, fluid lines of the flamingo's wings are especially beautiful.
