I just published my second children’s book on Amazon!
Florence the Fashionable Flamingo
What’s the fashionable flamingo to do when her feet get cold in the water? Join Florence the flamingo as she tries different solutions until she solves her problem.
Florence the Fashionable Flamingo uses alliteration. Many of the key words begin with the “F” sound. This makes the story fun to read and especially fun to listen to.
Facts about flamingos are woven into the story. They are pink, have long legs and long necks, and eat shrimp. They stand in the water, often on one leg. A flock of flamingos is called a flamboyance.
An element of fantasy is present in flamingos that dress in flowers and wear boots; flamingos that talk with each other; and flamingos that solve problems.
This book is appropriate for boys or girls, but may appeal to girls more because playing dress up is a central theme.
Florence the Fashionable Flamingo has an uncluttered art style which helps young children to focus. This book features nature scenes including birds, flowers, plants, and aquatic life such as shrimp, fish, and crabs.
BONUS: There’s a small crab on each page. Can you find it?
