5.0 out of 5 stars You can count on The Dancing Flamingos for hours and hours of fun!
Reviewed in the United States on September 8, 2015
The Dancing Flamingos is packed full of fun! The brilliantly colored illustrations and the charming story is suitable for younger children, who are lucky enough to have parents and teachers to read it to them. It is also a great book for slightly older kids.
As an example of what I mean concerning older kids of reading age, check out the inside of the cover page, it says, "Count the Flamingos!" I don't know if the author meant for us to solely count the single characters which comprise the Flamingos in The Dancing Flamingos of Lake Chimichanga, but I figure my eight year old grandson, who is all about math, will go through every page of this entertaining, gloriously illustrated book and come up with the correct total count, summing up every single Flamingo on every page. And he will LOVE that!
I also think that Chuck,the vulture who appears off and on in the book, adds a great amount of fun for older kids as well as younger ones.
So The Dancing Flamingos spans a wider range of children's ages, from young to older, and it is a rollicking ride on every page!

Author Karl Beckstand is a master storyteller. He plays with words somewhat along the lines of Dr.Seuss. It is not nonsense. It is exactly how children come to love the sounds of words, come to love reading as they grow up, and embrace books as they grow older. In other words, being crazy and silly in the right way could offer your child a pathway to access the great tool of imagination. Storybooks like The Dancing Flamingos of Lake Chimichanga encourage a love of the written word which stays with a child forever.
Yes, this book has a lot of pink in it! However my three grandsons will adore it. It has, along with the Flamingos, that wonderful vulture previously mentioned. He displays a dry wit and also acts as a counterfoil to the dizzy, dancing Flamingos of Lake Chimichanga. He alone is worth the price of admission! Your kids will love spotting Chuck when he turns up on a page!
Finally,
all's well that ends well. At the end the Flamingos drift off to sleep, each cuddled up on one leg, as flamingos do in real life, on the sweetly pictured final page. It is a peaceful and reassuring way to end this lovely book.
What a gift, to give a very loved child a wonderful book such as The Dancing Flamingos of Lake Chimichanga, by Karl Beckstrand (illustrated beautifully by Ashley Sanborn). It is playful, inspired, funny, and all around terrific!

I received this book in exchange for my unbiased review--jean
