This week’s children’s book review is all about Follow Me, Flo! by Jarvis. It was published by Walker Books on 2nd April 2020 and it is available to purchase on Amazon*.
We’re off to somewhere new. So stick to me like glue. Follow me, Flo! Come on, let’s go! We’re sure to be there soon…
Flo is a very mischievous little duckling who has a penchant for wandering off… She can’t help it, her curiosity is always taking her off on new adventures! Luckily, Daddy Duck has a trick to make sure Flo stays by his side … he sings the FOLLOW SONG. But on the way to visit Auntie Jenna’s house, Flo decides to sing her OWN louder, higher version of the Follow Song … with surprising and catastrophic results!
From the award-winning creator of Alan’s Big, Scary Teeth comes a hilarious and heartfelt daddy and daughter cautionary tale, sure to get all young readers laughing and singing.
At the minute we are having a real issue with Erin not listening to us a lot of the time. It’s really hard to explain to her why we need her to listen and do as we ask sometimes because she doesn’t really understand that there could be consequences.
In this book little Flo and her Dad go off on a trip to see Flo’s Aunt. However, Flo generally doesn’t do the things that she is supposed to do and Flo’s Dad doesn’t want her to get lost. To help Flo keep up he sings a song so that she pays attention and follows the right way.
Unfortunately Flo gets distracted along the way and goes off on a bit of her own adventure. Although Flo has fun she ends up in a bit of a tricky situation, having lost her Dad somewhere. Reading the book really helped Erin think about what could go wrong if she didn’t listen to us, or stay with us when we’re out and I don’t think she really has done before.
Follow Me, Flo! has a really simple message and an easy story to follow. As it wasn’t too complicated and there aren’t many characters, Erin was able to think about what was happening and asked questions along the way.
