Flamingos on the Roof bookOver the weekend I listened to a segment of NPR’s Weekend Edition with Scott Simon and Daniel Pinkwater. During the radio show each week they have a recurring segment on children’s books.

Last weekend Daniel Pinkwater reviewed a children’s book of poetry called, “Flamingos on the Roof” by Calef Brown. After hearing them read just a couple of the poems I knew I had to order a copy. I really connected with the author.

After seeing the cover and hearing the reporters describe the illustrations, I knew I would like the art as much as I did the poems. So, I ordered a copy of the book right away.

If you are curious and just want to hear a couple of poems from the book, you can go over and read about this segment of NPR’s Weekend Edition and see for yourself why that got me hooked. On that web page you can click on the “listen now” button to hear the recording of that broadcast. Enjoy!

Pinkwater is himself a fantastic (and freakishly prolific) author. His stuff is worth checking out. I didn’t realize he had a show on NPR now. I’ll have to try to listen to it now and then.
