Flora And The Chicks By Molly Idle

Flora And The ChicksLittle Flora has found a nest of eggs and they’re starting to hatch. When the mother hen wanders off Flora tries to scoop up the little chicks and transfer them to a large bowl but their wriggling and flapping make it a challenging task. Can your little one help her count them in?

This wordless lift-the-flap book has gorgeous illustrations and the cheeky rabble of wandering chicks never fail to amuse Ivy as they refuse to stay put. Flora is a determined little girl though and, unflustered,  she tries her best to round all ten of them up.

How does she manage to do this so gracefully? Look closely at the illustrations and you’ll spot that she’s actually performing a number of dance moves as she gathers up the chicks – a lovely detail if your toddler happens to go to a dance class and can recognise the positions!

Flora is in fact a character from a series of lift-the-flap picture books (all wordless) which cleverly use dance to express emotions and feelings. Flora and the Flamingo is probably the most well-known but they are all lovely.
