FUSSY FLAMINGO is an adorable fictional tale about a flamingo named Lola that doesn't want to eat shrimp. Instead, her leaves turn green from eating avocados and pink-red from eating dragonfruit! Eventually, she tries shrimp and finds that she loves it!

The accompanying illustrations are delightfully lovely with lots of color and flamingos. The story is paced well with repetition and patterns that are great for little kids to hear. I also appreciated that the story is set in Chile, where many flamingos reside, using the actual fruit from there and Mami and Papi for her parents' names. Their encouragement for Lola to try shrimp was fun, though I do wish they had given her some kudos for eating fruit!

The end of the book also includes some information about flamingos that was so interesting. I learned some new facts about flamingos as an adult! It definitely makes this a great book to learn about flamingos as well as targeting about picky eaters. There are some facts that were new to me, and I love that she eats fruit! Recommend for children who are picky eaters or who just love flamingos.
