Review – “Flora’s Blanket” by Debi Gliori

Flora’s Blanket by Debi Gliori was a gift from a friend of mine on T’s second birthday. I almost immediately took it out because we were in lockdown and I was running out of ways to keep her occupied. We read it once in a while because T is not particularly fond of it.

Baby Flora has lost her blanket and she can’t sleep without it. Her parents and brothers and sisters try t find it so that she can sleep and so can they. Where did Flora lose her blanket?


  • Short and simple sentences.
  • Introduction to the concept of owning things and try not to lose them. 
  • Extensive searching method and the fact that the owner (read toddler) should accompany the parents/persons who are helping them locate their lost things.

WHAT WE DISLIKED T didn’t exactly dislike anything but I wasn’t too comfortable with the large number of negation used in the story. Also, I didn’t find the groaning and sighing and crying appealing, though I must say it was quite realistic.

It can be skipped. Published by Orchard Books (Hachette Children’s Books) Recommended age 18+ months.
