Eeny, Meeny, Miney, Mo, and Flo written and illustrated by Laurel Molk (2015)
Flo’s brothers Eeny, Meeny, Miney, and Mo are adventurers! But they insist that Flo is too little to help them. Following the same pattern as the familiar nursery rhyme the brothers let the tiger go, then they have to let the hippo go, then the boa, and the turtle, even the dodo. But when the gator shows up with Flo’s scarf on his back, her brothers become concerned for her safety. Had Flo gone and gotten into trouble? But Flo surprises them all by catching all the animals, including her brothers, all by herself!
Teach your children the simple choosing chant while deciding who’s turn it is to set the table, sit in the rocking chair, or go first in a game of hopscotch.
What’s Flo’s secret? Popcorn! Make some today to share with your little one. Who else will come running to share it with you?
