Flora and the Flamingo Wins Caldecott Honor!

In the wee hours of the morning, our phones started buzzing with news from Philadelphia that Flora and the Flamingo, the irresistible wordless picture book by Molly Idle, had just won a Caldecott Honor—a first for Chronicle. One of the most prestigious awards in children’s literature, the Caldecott is awarded by the American Library Association to the most distinguished American picture books for children. One medal winner and three honor books were selected this year.

Our heartfelt thanks to the Caldecott committee for bestowing this honor on our book. And congratulations to Molly Idle and the entire Chronicle Kids team for their first Caldecott! Flora, take a bow.

Dance over to your local bookstore and pick up your copy of Flora and Flamingo today! Then keep your eyes peeled for a brand new adventure in friendship with our beloved ballerina: Flora and the Penguin, coming this fall!
