The Dancing Flamingos of Lake Chimichanga...Written by Karl Beckstrand...Illustrated by Ashley Sanborn
Paradisiac, tropical conditions reign supreme in this Pink of a kind dance-fest. To pull a book like this off, you need a great illustrator, given the vibrant bird-life under discussion. The charismatic art in this publication certainly holds up to the writing, which is warm and attention-grabbing prose that introduces a youngster to new phrases and vocabulary. There is a Seuss book which describes a character that drinks pink ink. This book takes that thought and runs with it, involving us in the notion that Flamingos get their color from a variety of pink and colorful fare.
Do you enjoy books for your children that have no other role than to insert fun into their lives? Well, you've found the wrong book, because this not only does that, but educates as well by influencing your child to enjoy diverse words and flow of thought. If that's what you look for in a book, like I do, than this one is for you. Your child won't even realize that they are being educated, because they'll have such a blast reading this or having it read to them.
