Kika reminds us that choosing to be different is more than okay, and finding others to join in her upside down adventures feels fliptastic - especially when it involves somersaults, vaults, flips and kips in the Gymnastics Emporium!
Such a cute book! I absolutely love the colorful pictures... and the happiness that being upside-down brings Kika. And I love the fliptastic words. I'm not going to be surprised when we end up with new upside-down vocabulary in our house.
I have to say... as a mom... it has driven me crazy that Ana seems to be upside-down more than she's right-side-up. On the couch, on the floor, on the swing.... upside-down. Ana definitely relates to Kika!
