Book review: Bob and Flo, by Rebecca Ashdown

Ashdown, Rebecca. Bob and Flo. (Penguin friends at preschool! series.) Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2014. ISBN 978-0-544-44430-0. 20 pgs. Ages 2-4. P9/Q9

Ashdown Bob and FloThis is a little story of two penguins at preschool.  Flo’s pink lunch bucket goes missing only to turn up when Bob uses it to make a sandcastle, and finally both Flo and Bob use the bucket for water so they can “Whoosh” down slide while they are playing at preschool.  Bob reminds Flo to make sure she brings her bucket so they can have some great fun at preschool.  The pictures are very simple and cute which make this a great story for small children.

October 2015 review by Melinda Dye.

[Editor’s note: Though Bob takes Flo’s bucket without asking her, there seem to be no consequences for his actions.  How do you reconcile the “sharing” versus taking or stealing?]
