The darling, dancing Flora is back, and this time she’s found two new friends: a pair of peacocks! But amidst the fanning feathers and mirrored movements, Flora realizes that the push and pull between three friends can be a delicate dance. Will this trio find a way to get back in step? In the third book featuring Flora and her feathered friends, Molly Idle’s gorgeous art combines with clever flaps to reveal that no matter the challenges, true friends will always find a way to dance, leap, and soar—together.
The story is told with a series of gorgeous illustrations and interactive lift-the-flaps playing out the “dance” of a young girl befriending two birds at once and the challenge presented by jealousy. It’s hard to share, and even harder to share a friend with a new friend and this book cleverly tackles this topic without so much as a word.
Young readers will love lifting the flaps to open Flora’s fans and lift up and down the beautiful peacock tails in perfect mimicry (or not!) Expect to be completely captivated by the fold out at the end of this book, depicting the beauty of shared friendship.
I recommend Flora and the Peacocks for ages 3 to 6.
