Shadow Songs: A Flora Figglesworth Fantasy by Baxter B. Bramatti is the latest entry in the series. Flora's home is surrounded by a majestic forest. One evening Flora wakes up hearing music coming from the woods. She sets out to find the source of the tune. Fireflies guide her as she tramps through the forest. In the dim light, she sees a frog playing the drums, but as the fireflies illuminate the scene, it is just a snoring frog on some mushrooms. She continues to search with the help of the fireflies. She encounters many more creatures along her trek. Does Flora find the source of the mysterious music, or is it just in her imagination?
Shadow Songs celebrates the joy of imagination with a fun bedtime tale. Flora Figglesworth is a spunky little girl who seeks out answers to her questions bravely. The illustrations by Taylor J. Graham are filled with soft, muted colors that enhance the dreamlike quality of the story. The fireflies' glowing trails of light are enchanting. Kids will enjoy studying the shadow pictures and the same scene illuminated by the fireflies. Baxter B. Bramatti has filled his rhyming story with a fun collection of woodland creatures that kids will enjoy identifying. He has used shadows and darkness, which can sometimes be scary for kids, and turned it into a magical, imaginative journey. This is is a delightful story perfect for sharing at bedtime. Kids will fall asleep dreaming about their own imaginative worlds, maybe with a tune in their heads.
