Review! Flora and the Peacocks by Molly Idle

By Molly Idle

40 pages – ages 5+

Published by Chronicle Books on May 3, 2016

Synopsis- Flora is back in another wordless picture book! This time, she and two peacocks are going to dance together. But what if the two peacocks both want Flora to themselves? Can the dance go on?

What I Thought- I really like this series (see Flora and the flamingo and Flora and the penguin). This is a great next book, and I like that it teaches that it is okay to have more than one friend. The peacocks fight over Flora, and end up ripping her fan. Ms. Idle’s illustrations are gorgeous, but that’s not all you have to look at – there are also flaps to flip, and even a fold-out scene.

I really like these, because it makes the reading experience even more interactive. I really like how Ms. Idle does these wordless picture books!

I give this book five out of five bookworms!

  3. I just got back the point I lost to you a while back. Woo-who! Nice review. I love these Molly Idle books. She says so much with no words. I wonder what animal will dance with the young girl next.

  4. Just picked this up from the library!

  5. We love Flora! The way that Molly captures the scenes without words is exquisite.
