Do you have a sibling? Well, if you do, you know that you do not always get along. But sometimes, they can be your best friend. And in Flora’s Tree House we see a sweet story about siblings that shows you might not always like them, but you usually love them, and they can be your best friend.
And we see in Gabriel Alborozo’s book how Flora and Will check off all the boxes. Will: pesky brother, adventurous, loud. Flora: thoughtful, artistic, likes Will’s inspirations for her artwork, but wishes he was not so loud. One day, Will sneaks into Flora’s treehouse (despite the No Wills Allowed sign) and starts to tease her. That is until he sees her drawings and becomes awestruck. How did she know the aliens he was battling were those colors? How did she know of that adventure he did…. wait is that Flora in the background? Flora, is excited she can share her work and go off some adventures of her own with her brother along for the ride! And that is how the rest of their day goes. Sailing off watching out for pirate ships!
The clever text makes this a cozy read for someone who might be having “pesky sibling issues” or just a fun story time about imagination. If you have a child who likes art or reading this is a book for them.
