Flamingo Sunset

Overview

The female lays an egg. She and her mate take turns stilling on it to keep it warm.

Kristina Rodanas's majestic paintings and Jonathan London's lyrical text pay tribute to one of nature's most beautiful creatures.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
AGERANGE: Ages 5 to 8.

In a simple, lyrical text and radiant, pink-hued paintings, London and Rodanas celebrate the birth and growth to maturity of one tiny flamingo fledgling. First, "as the spring sun sets into the tropical sea, two flamingos build a cone-shaped mud nest at the water's edge." Then comes the laying, warming, and hatching of the female's one precious egg. The newborn chick learns to stand, waddle, feed himself, and finally to fly off "into a flaming flamingo sunset." London knows just what to include in this quiet odyssey, and what to leave out: additional, more technical but still engaging, information about flamingos is relegated to an author's note at the end of the book. Rodanas's shimmering seas and glorious skies offer a breathtaking backdrop for this adorable chick, growing up in his magically-beautiful "pink city of flamingoes." One can only join London in his hope for conservation of the remaining flamingo habitat to save "these magnificent, graceful birds--among the most beautiful in all creation." Reviewer: Claudia Mills, Ph.D.
