Description


From award-winning author-illustrator of Little One comes a deeply moving tale about respect for the elderly, community, and farewells.

Bibi the flamingo has been with her flock for longer than anyone can remember. When the lake dries up, the flamingos are forced to leave their babies behind and fly away to find water. Bibi bravely volunteers to guide the baby flamingos on foot across the barren salt flats to reunite them with their parents.

But when one little flamingo starts to fall behind, Bibi teaches everyone a valuable lesson about community and the importance of helping one another in times of need.
