Flora's made a new friend and in a graceful dance along the ice learns a few lessons about friendship.
Molly Idle has given readers a way to explore the elements of friendship - the courage to reach out and make a new friend, the misunderstandings that can happen, and willingness to make things better - and reassure them that friendships endure.
Both the page turn and the flap lifts move this story along. As with the previous book, the placement and use of flaps is brilliant. Subtle changes or events in the story take on import and make the reader stop, explore, and consider the scene.
This particular page astounds me. I love how the reader can see both their movements although they cannot see each other.
