Book Review: Flim Flam & Other Such Gobbledygook

Flim Flam blog tourAbout the book:
It’s party time in the barnyard! But some of the animals don’t want to invite everyone. This adorable rhyming children’s book reminds us that little differences don’t matter and that we can be friends with everyone, even if we don’t all look the same. Contains fun words to read and has colorful illustrations. It’s a perfect bedtime book to enjoy again and again!

About the author:
If she’s not sitting at the computer writing, Melica Hudgens can usually be found out in the garden pulling weeds or finding a place to plant something new. Melica also enjoys riding bicycles with her husband, taking walks, and enjoying the gifts of nature with her grandchildren.

About the illustrator:
Jay Fontano is a drawer. Not the kind in your dresser. The kind who draws. And that’s the fun kind.

From Reidhead Randomness:
Funny words from the title are only a few of the chuckle inducing phrases in this fun story.  The rhyme and rhythm, with darling, colorful pictures bring this story to life!  The book shares a great message about being friends with matter the differences you have.  It helps to teach kids to appreciate differences, and uniqueness. 

My favorite line comes from the end of the book:  "...instead of unkindness, Choose niceness and see...exactly how joyful the barnyard can be!"

(At the end of the story, there is a glossary....since there are lots of FUNNY words and phrases!)

It's a SUPER fun book!

I received a copy of this book in order to write my review, however all opinions expressed are my own.
