Bright and Colorful: Flora and the Peacocks

Molly Idle's latest Flora book is beautifully crafted with bold colors and a complete story told without words. For children who are in the very early stages of being ready to read, this is an ideal learning tool. There are no words, but the images tell the story perfectly. There are also flip-ups for children to explore what lies beneath. It's due to be released on May 3rd.

Flora loves to dance, and this time her dancing partners are not one but two peacocks. The problem is that the peacocks may not be as willing to share. What will Flora do?

The illustrations, done by Molly Idle, a former DreamWorks Animations artist, are bright and capture the colors of a peacock's feathers. If you're new to Flora, these books stand alone, but they're also a lot of fun, so you may want to pick up the other two books involving flamingos and penguins.

These books are worthy of being on a keeper shelf. Flora and the Flamingo earned a Caldecott Honor. Look for them at Chronicle Kids, online retailers, and your favorite bookstore.
