Publisher's Summary

Meet a flamingo that comes to learn that being yourself is the best thing to be! "Mama, why are we pink?" asks an ever-curious young flamingo named Sylvie. When she learns that it's due to the little pink brine shrimp they eat, Sylvie takes the maxim "You are what you eat!" to a whole new level. Her new diet leads to some colorful new looks--from scarlet to green to positively purple! Ultimately, Sylvie learns the valuable lesson that sometimes it's best just to be yourself. Little listeners will love trying to guess "what happens next?" This new edition is perfect for little hands, and for stowing in backpacks and strollers for reading on the go! "There is a surprise ending that will surely induce giggles from kids. Sattler's art steals the show; the colors are eye-popping and vibrant, right to the swirling bright endpapers. As Sylvie changes colors the background changes hues as well. This title is sure to create story time magic." --School Library Journal
