Flamingo, Acceptance, Friendship, Toddler, Preschool, Primary, Excellent
Filippo is a pink flamingo that does not want to be pink. When Zac the zebra and Poncho the panda do not accept the color of Filippo’s feathers, Filippo just wants to gain acceptance. He tries to reason with them and even resorts to painting his feathers black and white. After an entire day of failure, Filippo is approached by a lemur who encourages him to accept himself the way he is. Together, they embrace pink and even get the other animals to join in on the fun.
