Sweet Book Summary:
Flamingos is an interesting book overflowing with facts about the large (over five feet tall!), rather majestic birds. I didn't realize until reading this informative little book, that there was so much to know about them. Did you know they actually talk to each other? Another interesting tidbit: Flamingos live in colonies of over a thousand and sometimes up to a million, and they ALL dance together. Pretty cool. As stated in the bullet points, the author does a great job of putting a lot of information into an easily readable format for young readers: short sentences, clear organization of facts and interesting information.
