It is the little things that kids notice and remember. The finer details about how you wore your hair or your funny shoes. Something that may seem silly or no big deal to a teacher may mean the world to a child or even a parent. Everyone notices the little things. Even when they don’t they do. The whole experience is more fun. Someone may not be able to tell you why – they just know.

The kids really enjoyed this story. The artwork is beautiful and the story has a good message. You follow Sylvie, the flamingo, as she takes on physical aspects of those around based on what she eats. She figures out along the way that it’s ok to embrace who you are, but can still add a little of your own pizzazz and let your own personality shine through. What a fun story for young kids to hear. And they learn how flamingos are pink!
