Flip Flap Floodle is a cute little story for any cute little children in your life. The lively, colourful pictures will grab a toddler's eyes, and if you can read a few notes of music, you can whistle Flip's tune.
The simple story line is just right for the age group, and is readily adaptable to the parent doing a little acting, encouraging the child to do the same.
Like any good children's story, this one teaches lessons. In simple words, embedded in a lot of fun, are the messages: be careful, don't trust the Mr. Foxes of your world; act with strength and resolution in the face of adversity; never give up.

Flip Flap Floodle tells a delightful story, especially for 3- to 7-year olds. This sweet and inspiring tale of a happy yellow duckling would make perfect bedtime reading. Flip has learned a song on his new flute and sets off through the woods to Grandma's house to play her his song. Children will enjoy singing along with Flip's simple tune (music is included) as he entertains those he meets along the way. Mr. Bear is in too big a hurry to listen for long, but Mr. Chicken predicts that Flip will someday be a star. While daydreaming about stardom, Flip encounters mean old Mr. Fox, who isn't impressed by Flip's music but would love to eat an unsuspecting duck for dinner. When feisty Mrs. Floodle comes looking for her son, Flip learns the importance of knowing whom to trust and of accepting a little help now and then. The story also affirms the values of persistence, confidence, courage, and love. Author Joan Y. Edwards's vibrantly colorful illustrations will charm and engage young readers.

Have you ever heard a duck play a flute? Flip Flap Foodle is a happy duck who does indeed play a tune on a flute. He wants to share his song with everyone. His mother warned him to be careful of Mr. Fox and to be home before dark. He attempted to share his tune with Mr. Bear but Mr. Bear was just too busy. When Flip encountered Mr. Chicken he was happy to hear a song. Flip was so excited he just knew he would make his grandmother proud. As he made his way to home, Flip was so involved playing his flute that he hadn't realized he had ended up into parts of the woods where Mr. Fox lurked. Little did Flip know he would have to play the flute for the sly Mr. Fox, but would that be enough for him to save himself? You'll have to read the story to find out.

Flip Flap Floodle is a light-hearted adventure for any early reader. Simple sentences and colorful illustrations make for a quick and delightful read.

Format: Paperback
This is a tale about Flip; a little yellow fellow who has a musical talent and a never ending energy that keeps him believing in himself. While a devious act is committed against Flip, in spite of his demise, he never loses hope.

His Mother, who fears for his safety, gives the villain a well deserved thrashing. But, the real empowerment of the story is Flip, who never loses faith in his special talent, or in himself.

This cute, quirky, and a little bit scary story, has some nurturing life lessons for children. It shows friendship, faith, love and entertainment among its pages. I give Flip Flap Floodle, written and illustrated by Joan Y. Edwards, 5 ***** stars for bright engaging illustrations, and content that is sure to amuse young children.

FLIP, FLAP, FLOODLE is a delightful story about a happy little duck who loves to play his flute. With a spring in his step and a song in his heart, Flip sets out one day to play a tune for Grandma, but runs into hungry Mr. Fox along the way. Sure that his song will save him, Flip (with some help from his feisty mother) proves that determination and perseverance can "out fox" the wiliest foe.

With the feel of a classic fairy tale, FLIP, FLAP, FLOODLE has a message that speaks to young and old alike. Ms. Edwards' vibrant illustrations add the perfect touch of whimsy to a humorous, inspiring story. Children will enjoy Flip's tale, and will be eager to read more about his adventures.

FLIP FLAP FLOODLE is a delightful story about a happy little duck who uses his flute to play a special song. It is a wonderful and inspirational story for children who can sing along with Flip as he makes his way to his grandmother's house. They will enjoy Flip's adventures as he plays his tune for Mr. Bear and Mr. Chicken. When Mr. Fox threatens to end his playing - and his dreams of being a big star - his mother comes looking for him and Flip learns an important lesson about trust, confidence and how to outsmart a fox! It's a great story that children will surely remember and learn to read by themselves!

When I was a School Counselor, I often used literature to illustrate good character traits and making good decisions. I shared Flip Flap Floodle with a 1st grade class. We had been talking about asking trusted adults for help when needed. This book fit right in with our study. After reading, the students created thank you cards to give an adult who had helped them. One of the children said that the author should get a thank you card for her book about helping others. I agreed.
