FloIt might be possible that I would love this one just as much if it were wordless the illustrations are ADORABLE A very cute story for the preschool crowd about slowing down and enjoying life Anyone who has ever tried to rush a child to get somewhere will relate as will the child who just wants to BE for once And like I said the illustrations are so so sweet Thanks to the publisher for advance reader copy of this title all opinions are my own A witty picture book starring an adorable panda that celebrates relaxing stopping to smell the roses and being yourselfMeet Flo Flo is the littlest panda She likes to explore relax and enjoy everything around her She is never in a hurry But sometimes she takes too much time and the other pandas get impatient One day they find themselves in trouble Can Flo’s floppy ways save the day With Kyo Maclear’s sweet spare text and Jay Fleck’s bold bright illustrations Flo is sure to be a favorite for even the busiest little pandas One of the ever growing list of picture books promoting freedom for kids and a less scheduled life Flo is spontaneous and therefore creative than the other pandas so she saves the day The pictures are restfully uncrowded with simple lines and they're cute but the book didn't uite work for meLibrary copy Flo is simply delightful She reminds us to stop and smell the roses and enjoy life without over scheduling ourselves We should all be like Flo and get floppy often Absolutely adorable Jen K OH I AM IN LOVE A busy busy little panda with message about over scheduling kids I think this book is about my oldest daughter in panda form A cute story about being yourself Meh The message of the book over scheduling diminishes imagination is a good message but the delivery is a little too heavy handed to be humorous The illustrations are cute but border on precious Probably many of have known someone like Flo She dawdles through life taking her time exploring the world around her and literally stopping to smell the roses While there's nothing inherently wrong with that for individuals with busy busy lives it can be annoying to have to wait Most of the time the bigger pandas don't mind waiting for Flo but they are mindful of their busy Saturday agenda and end up leaving her to her own devices on shore while they go off boating As it turns out they need to be rescued and Flo is there to do just that primarily because she's been paying attention to the little details around her The message here is clear even though the rescue seemed a bit contrived to me My favorite illustration featured an older panda with a chalk board filled with the days of the week and the various activities that have been crossed off as they were completed as though they were tasks and hurdles to be leaped over Thank goodness for Sunday which is not listed here and promises a day of complete rest Many of us adults can relate to this problem of having every free moment scheduled but the picture book also provides a humorous reminder to caregivers to be careful not to fill up every moment of a child's day since everyone needs some downtime just to observe dream and think Perhaps learning to go with the flow will help us all enjoy life a lot
