Maybe We Are Flamingos by Safari Sue Thurman

Maybe we are FlamingoesIf you are looking for a charming, delightful story for your youngster, then you’ll find it in Maybe We Are Flamingos.

Flora and Fernando are concerned because they don’t look like the rest of their flock. Maybe they really aren’t pink flamingos after all. But some thoughtful words from Mum assure them they will turn pink in about a year and stay pink because of the food they eat–which leaves these young birds much relieved and happy enough to draw a few pictures of what they might look like if they ate pineapples and watermelons.

Thurman has created a wonderful and humorous story with Maybe We Are Flamingos. Kids will love reading how Flora and Fernando go from scared and unsure to happy and silly. Thurman’s gift of imagination shines through brilliantly when Flora and Fernando draw pictures of what they might look like if their diets were a bit different.

Kudos go out to Kevin Scott Collier for bringing this charming story to life with his beautiful illustrations. I was already a fan of Collier’s work prior to this book, and he doesn’t disappoint the reader this time around either.

My daughters absolutely loved Maybe We Are Flamingos and have asked for it to be read over and over again. They’ve also had great fun making up their own stories to match the illustrations–a true sign that this book has touched their hearts.

Maybe We Are Flamingos is a must have for every young reader!

  • Crash! by Mayra Calvani

    Crash!Children will love reading about Marcelo and his new puppy in Crash! by Mayra Calvani.

    Marcelo’s parents surprise him on his fifth birthday with a golden retriever puppy–the one thing he wanted more than anything in the world. Thrilled beyond all belief, Marcelo must now learn how to take care of his new puppy: feeding him, walking him, playing with him. But all that is easy compared to finding a name for him.

    Crash! is a charming story about a boy and his dog and the special relationship that develops between a child and his pet. Author Mayra Calvani shows off her storytelling talents once again, as she did with The Magic Violin. Calvani has a way of getting right to the heart of children with her touching stories.

    Kudos go out to young illustrator, Anna Pylypchuk, whose beautifully drawn illustrations bring Calvani’s story to life. My children each had their favorite drawings from the story.

    I can’t wait to see what Mayra Calvani’s next children’s book is all about!
