Sylvie by Jennifer Sattler

Sylvie is a pink flamingo who wonders and questions. She wants to know why she is pink. After a straight-forward answer from her mother (you are what you eat), Sylvie curiously begins to explore new foods and things that change her appearance and leave her feeling a bit unsettled. Sylvie discovers that to feel like herself again, she goes back to what she knows.
I am hoping this hits home with my curious learners. Sylvie is an example of a bold and imaginative character who learns as she explores. I am thinking she will help set the tone for taking risks and learning in my own classroom. Can't wait to read this aloud this fall!

I just picked this one up myself, my kids LOVE Sylvie!

Then ending is so cute, my son asks for it again and again!

Wonderful book!

"You are what you eat" is a nice phrase, can appreciatively be used for a tagline of a drug, food or confectionaries Ad.
Nice one there, keep at the good work.
