Dancing without words
Flora has her fan and is ready to dance with the peacocks, but are the peacocks willing to dance with her? As she takes turns with the birds, they become jealous and eventually rip her fan, leaving her very sad. Is there a way to repair the damage?
What I love most about Flora and the Peacocks is the illustrations. The colors and the emotion conveyed in the characters' faces is exquisite. Young readers will LOVE the last fold out. Because each of the birds has his/her own feather (flap), how you tell the story can change every time you open the book. That is just awesome.
Gorgeous illustrations and flaps engage readers as they create their story from the imagery.
Although the pages are sturdy, they are not childproof. Like Flora's fan, the flaps could easily be ripped by small hands.
This is a wordless picture book that has hands-on opportunities with flaps.
Several themes naturally present themselves just by looking at the illustrations: friendship, cooperation, compromise, and problem-solving. Young readers are bound to discover others, so definitely encourage them to tell the story as they see it.

Buy. The illustrations are beautiful, and as a wordless book there are infinite ways to tell a story.
