CHARACTER COUNTS: Flora and the Chicks


Flora and the Chicks
By Molly Idle
Chronicle Books, 2017. Board book.

Did you know that Molly Idle has a new Flora book? If you are a fan of this series of wordless picture books that follow a little ballet dancer as she interacts with birds in dance poses, then you probably do. For those of you who don't, this beautifully illustrated board book is a great pick for your little ones, even if they don't like birds or ballet or Caldecott Honor winning illustrators.

This book keeps with the others in the series in being totally wordless - although it does have numbers as this is a counting book. We join Flora as she meets a nestful of chicks and learns how rambunctious they can be as she tries to gather each new hatchling together. As always, Flora's gentle nature shines through as she silently deals with the baby chickens. A sweet book filled with sweet illustrations perfect for younger Flora fans.
