Told through expressive, graceful illustrations this book explores opposites through what can best be described as an introductory dance. Flora and the ostrich are getting to know each other through their exploration of the opposites and find that they have more in common than it may first appear. It has beautiful fold-out pages and a lovely unifying ending.

I love this lift-the-flap book! It's beautifully illustrated, and I love that it has an ostrich in it. The book is a wonderful opposites book, and it creatively uses the flaps to better demonstrate the text.
