‘The illustrations are an enchanting enhancement to Schroeder’s words. Baby Flo’s joy is palpable. Her impromptu audiences, filled with faces shocked and surprised by her magnetic performances, wear their wonder with such utter openness that you can almost hear the little girl’s precocious voice. Her tiny toddler body looking out with frightened wide eyes from the expansive open stage of the Bijou Theater is a touching reminder of her tender age. The final spread at story’s end as the theater marquis lights up with Baby Flo’s name, is a gleeful hop-skip-and-jumping dance of father and still-small daughter, just beckoning readers to join in. Forget American Idol or [insert country]‘s Got Talent … here’s a true icon to applaud and celebrate.’
